Default SS Braided Brake Lines

When I built my 10, I used SS lines created from a vendor whose first name I believe was Tom. An excellent product. I've lost his last name and contact information. Does anyone have a recollection of this vendor or his contact information?

Tom is a common poster on this forum. Aircraft Specialty is the company.

Tom and I merged forces several years back. Right now, there are three websites..... www.tsflightlines.com, www.aircraftspecialty.com and www.asflightlines.com (Aircraft Specialty Flightlines)

1. The TS Flightlines website is no longer being updated.

2. www.aircraftspecialty.com is being updated and contains all current information on the complete product lines.

3. Eventually, everything will be merged over to www.asflightlines.com, but it may be awhile before we are able to make that transition.

Tom and I greatly appreciate you allowing us to be a part of your builds.

Default I'll chime in here--

Yep Steve and I merged the fluidline divisions of our two companies several years ago. We found that working together was better for us, better for yo the owners and builders. My website, TS Flightlines.com is honestly a disaster. Suzanne did a great job of keeping it up unit she got sick, and I dont have a clue. Steve's site is updated all the time and it interacts with the new AS Flightlines.com site.

Nope I didnt vanish--still around!

Tom

Default Happy to chime in here on a snowy day

... you won't find more helpful vendors anywhere who truly "get" the experimental community and consistently go the extra mile.

I'm glad to have them in my corner whenever the -10 needs a phase-1 tweak!

Very satisfied customer.

I bought all my brake and FF lines from Tom. I sent him many emails with questions about the products and about installation once received. He answered every email promptly and helpfully. Even gave me great advice on other products, like parking brakes.

I cannot endorse Tom, his products, and his company enough!

Dennis, tsflightlines.com I agree, just replaced all fluid lines on my plane. Tom was very helpful.

I think Tom merged TS Flightlines with Aircraft Specialty. Hence my earlier post.

I've purchased all my brakelines and all my FF lines from Tom, and AS was the operating business, not TS.
