Default Finally!!!

I think I have been on here for 3 years now. I have read almost everyone's build thread from Tim Olsen, Ed Kranz, Mouser, Jason Ellis, Ivan, Bob, Charlie "Mark" and countless others. I have discussed the time, financial and other issues with undertaking this build and my wife and my life is finally in a good place to do it! I have already got my workshop ready (4 EAA tables, compressor with 3 air stations, drill press, band saw, TV and fridge!). Planning on purchasing the empanage at Oshkosh and a tool se and am taking the sheet metal class.
Are the tool deals worth it at OSH or should I get them now? Planning on Isham kit.
Thanks for all the knowledge this site has provided.
Hope you guys follow along

I'm jealous. I think I'm maybe a year behind you in my timeline as I am still waiting approval from the "boss".

Also interested in waiting for Oshkosh is the way to go to get deals on tools.

Default had a lot of tools but...

I went with an Isham set and I was/am extremely happy with them. You won't regret getting started right away. Not sure what deals they will have at Oshkosh. Some vendors advertise the deals they will be having there.

Default Congrats!

I also started off with the Isham Tool Set. You'll end up buying more tools as you progress in the build anyway. Just curious. What is your builder number?

Mike,
Haven't purchased the kit yet, planning on buying it OSH. Once I get the builder number will let everyone know!

Congratulations! You're in for a challenging but very rewarding journey!

Take lots of pictures, for yourself as much as others. It's crazy all the things you forget about as time passes!

Ed,

Nice Picture in your signature. Is that your paint scheme and/or finished RV-10?

Ed. Thanks. I must admit, I watched every step of your build. I plan to replicate a lot of what you accomplished (imitation is the biggest form of flattery). Can't believe I actually spent time reading about Arduino's!! Your interior is part of the reason my wife loves the idea of this plane.
