Default Part question again ?

Hi at all,

once again i am wondering what part i have found here. It is a stainless steel stripe, marked "Caution it is sharp", thanks .

The label says also : SS304-26GAX1/2X9

Does anybody have an idea where this could/should be used ?

Thank You very much.

I too would like to know. I have two of them left over from my two RV8 builds. I didnít use themÖÖ. because I donít know what they are for. I must have skipped that page in the construction manual - twice!

IIRC that is used to clamp around the SCAT ducting for the heater "system". See drawing OP-29, OP-33.

However, you would be better served by using a MS21919-WDG-32 (adel) clamp for the SCAT...IMHO

+1 on what Brian said. If you do use them there is an unwritten rule that they will cut you in the process; it's unavoidable.

Another possible spot where they could be used
Drawing 45, cross section R-R. Spacer shim between cowling vertical hinge & stainless firewall to build up thickness to match cowl thickness to fuselage side skin.
I opt to use .020 aluminum shim here as others have mentioned much easier on the fingers.
built a few RVs, rebuilt a few more, hot rodded more, & maintained/updated a big bunch more

They might be usable to wrap around and secure the cooling blast tubes aimed at the magnetos. I still havenít figured out a really good way to secure those.
