Left Wing Cleanup and Assemble to Wing Stub
She looks like an airplane!  Check it out!  This is the first time I've seen Katie up close with a wing on.  I'm pretty stoked.  I cleaned up the left wing today and attached it to the wing stub to see what kind of work I'll have to do where the gap is betw...

Tail Wheel Bracket Design
Here are the drawings I sketched up for the new tail wheel bracket.  It's going to be constructed from 1/4" 6061-T6 (aircraft-grade) aluminum by Cut Rite Machine Shop in Butler, PA.  When David has it ready and sent back to me, I'm going to have the bracket...

Time to Make Something!
It's been a while since I last did any work on Katie, thanks to that darned activity that pays the bills.  I decided it's time to make something for a change of pace, as opposed to taking things apart, so, in keeping with my strategy of starting from the ta...

Missing Katie
This is the first time since bringing Katie home that I can't walk out in the garage and tinker.  Sheila told me today though that she and her Dad, Dale, will take good care of her until I get back.

Removing Rudder Attach Fittings on Vertical Stabilizer
Dis-assembly on this bird is a real challenge. Apparently, the builder of 858TM never planned to replace or lubricate any of the control surface hinges because they were all glassed in AFTER attach points were installed.  Access points have to be cut in the...

Workflow Engine in GP 2013 R2 and GP 2015
I've seen a lot of activity recently on the Dynamics GP Forum , indicating confusion over what version of SharePoint works with the new GP Workflow 1.0 and 2.0.  Quick answer - none of them.  GP 2013 R2 and GP 2015 both have a native workflow engine built i...

Right Wing Cleanup
Right wing end is now cleaned up - literally.  In addition to straightening out the cut line, I gave the whole wing a bath.  The underside of the wing looked like it had never been washed.  A little Simple Green made it shiny and clean.  Duct tape is just t...

Time to work on the Wings
After an apparent hiatus from progress the past couple weeks (I say 'apparent' because there has been progress - working on the tail wheel bracket design and procuring materials) I decided it was time to grab the wings down off the wall and start cleaning t...

Elevator Removal
Wow, this process took quite some time because, once again, no allowance was made by the original builder to disassemble components that should be disassembled and inspected regularly.  After lots of drilling, Dremel-ing, hack sawing, etc., I got the elevat...

Trying to Remove the Elevator
This has been a real chore, again because they assembled the hinge points prior to glassing in the elevator, with no access to the hinges whatsoever.  In the process of cutting access to the hinges, I found they used paper towels as filler in the leading ed...

Removing the Rudder for Refurb
Good lord, the more I dig into this bird, the more convinced I am it was built by farmers pulling parts out of their scrap bin.  They must have been going for the 'world's cheapest, flying KR2S'.  LOL I removed the rudder yesterday because the fiberglass wo...

Sorting out the Spaghetti
Man, what a mess this was but now that I have the wires sorted out and labeled, it will be a whole lot easier rewiring the instruments that go back in.  This thing had a ton of over-sized instruments in the panel, primary of which was a combo oil pressure/o...

Race City Heating & Air responded very quickly. Nick Keziah replaced the capacitor on my air unit and had me running in no time. He also shared lots of tips regarding how to extend the life of these 16 y/o units. He really is about educated customers. Thanks Nick and Race City!
