I have old delta stuff. I have also owned some WEN tools as of recent and would really like to buy some more of it. Not industrial grade but great reviews on amazon, I have a planer and bench grinder from them.

Thank you sir! Yea you can spend a fortune on just a drill press and band saw. I imagine for building an RV any of the Wen/Ryobi/maybe even HF stuff would suffice.

What's in the box?!?!?!

Yep, you guessed it. My Hartzell constant speed 74" prop arrived!

Oh this you ask? No big deal, it's just an engine! Haha My IO-360-M1B arrived as well. The sealing bag was compromised so I said, mind as well open it up and take a look. I resealed it with some new desiccant. My wife is pretty awesome too, she let it go in the corner of our dining room since the humidity inside the house is only 25%.

Finally, I'm trying to make this winter a productive one with some inside work. I saved the flaps and ailerons so I could work on our dining room table like I did with the empennage. I started with the ailerons yesterday. I have had a hiatus recently due to remodeling our baby room, now that that task is done back to building!

Got some priming done today. I had some extra primer so a tip for those coming into building, there seems to always be little things that need primed, since I had some extra today I primed the parts for the ADAHARS shelf and a couple of covers.

Look... Santa came early! HOW COOL IS THAT!

just wondering why you are building ailerons now when you have the fuselage all done. Why did you leave this out till so late?

Looking at that pretty new propeller, just a friendly reminder to all to NOT store the propeller directly on your garage or hanger floor!!! My RV-200 prop suffered significant corrosion within the hub assembly, which I attribute to setting the shipping box (with the propeller wrapped inside, in plastic) for a couple of years while I finished building the airplane. I believe it pulled moisture out of the concrete floor as it "breathed" during the daily rise and fall in temperatures. I live in the Central Valley of California, a "desert" climate, but internal corrosion still occurred.

Good question sir, my garage is not heated and the temps here where I live can and do often drop into the -20 to -30 range making it not only impossible to work in the garage but probably dangerous haha. Therefore, I kept these tasks for the winter since I can work on them inside other than priming (which I transport to a shop). Last year I took 3 months off of building due to winter, I don't want that to happen again. Also I really need to do the canopy next but it has to be quite warm for that so I'm at a stand still on the fuse.

Great tip for everyone! Mine is stored out in the open so she can breath for sure. The engine is sealed in a bag but I also have a humidity sensor inside with dessicant to monitor, right now it is showing 20%, nice and dry.
