I just bought a used CP-214 C-type squeezer off of the “well known internet auction website” but at $145 I’m pretty sure it’s going to need some attention to get it working correctly again. The...

Thanks! I’m in the formative stages of getting my ducks in a row to begin my own build. Not sure I’d ever need more than “as-designed” capacity but I was intrigued about the idea of having more. Like...

Total noob question here, but looking at the website it lists fuel capacity for the RV-9/A at 36 gallons. Is that per wing, or do you have optional larger capacity tanks? I kicked around the website...

Brakes on a taildragger, or nah?

Does anyone fly a taildragger without brakes? If so, I’d be interested to know how that’s been working out. Seems like it would be fine, even advantageous in some ways.

I’m definitely going to re-allocate the $700 or so I would have spent on a pneumatic squeezer to either other tools or put it in the war chest for the tail kit. Thanks for all the input, y’all!

I live in the humid Southeastern US and plan to make Florida (and Coastal Georgia) trips a regular part of my routine so when I start my build I will DEFINITELY be primering my plane.

I really think you’re right. I don’t know the exact percentage but the vast majority of rivets on a 12 are pop rivets. I do have a bit of an advantage in that I work at Aircraft Spruce so the...

Pneumatic rivet squeezer... luxury or necessity?

I’m in the formative stages of assembling my tools and getting my garage ready to start an RV12is build in the near future. As most of the rivets are of the pulled variety, would there be any merit...
