Default RV build NW ATL / GA

I just bought an unused -8 tail kit today. I haven't had too much hands on with RV's so I'm looking for someone in NW GA too talk too and maybe buck a few rivets with.

I am in Woodstock so somewhere over here would be ideal. Of course someone a bit farther is an excuse to fly the Dakota so....
Reply or shoot me a pm if you need an extra set of hands.

Thanks guys

Dan

Welcome aboard. There are quite a few builders and flyers in the NW Atlanta area. Hopefully a few of them will chime in.

Do you have your basic tools? Rivet gun, sets, bucking bars, drills, dimpling equipment, drills, etc?

If so, the best thing you can do is get someone to show you how to drive a rivet, then spend 30 minutes an evening for a couple of weeks practicing.

I'd be glad to show you the ropes myself, but I have commitments for the next few weekends (and a 3 year old who consumes most evenings).

Default Welcome Dan

Welcome. If you want to come over to the NE side (Suwanee), I can help you get started on riveting. I have lots of leftover scrap to work on. There is a group of RV builders that get together every about 6-8 weeks to socialize and help out each other. I am working on my RV-10 almost every night.

Dan,
I'm working on a -14, but also purchased an -8 this summer to fly while building.
Shoot me over a PM, I would be happy to give you a hand sometime.

Thanks for all the responses guys. I don't have tools yet but am looking at pro's & cons of each supplier, Isham, Avery, etc.

If any of you have input into DRDT and pneumatic squeezer vs C frame and hand I would love to hear them.

Sending PMs now.

Dan

Dan, my brother and I built a RV-9A in Woodstock. It is now flying out of Calhoun. I am currently helping him with a RV-10 in Canton. Be glad to help anyway we can.

Default DRDT2

Definitely buy the DRDT2. Definitely numatic squeezers. Defininely Tungstan bucking bar (1"x3"x.75" or about). I bought Avery tools and have been happy with them. Other suppliers good as well.
