Labeling Electrical Wires
Labeling electrical wires is sometimes overlooked during the building process. EAA volunteer Fred Stadler shows how effective a label maker can be to mark heat shrink tubing and install on wires as a method to mark wires for later identification.
Key Switch Installation
Tracy Buttles from the EAA staff demonstrates how to install a ignition key switch into an instrument panel in a way that locks it in place and prevents it from rotating within the mounting hole.
Antenna Ground Plane
Antenna ground planes for composite or wood aircraft can be made in various ways. EAA Technical Counselor and A&P/IA mechanic Dick Koehler demonstrates how to use copper foil tape to make a light weight and effective antenna ground plane.
EAA technical counselor and A&P/IA Dick Koehler demonstrates the use of heat shrinkable solder sleeves and how they can conveniently be used to tie ground wires together.
Dick Koehler discusses types of electrical switches and their usage. Dick is a Technical Counselor for EAA Chapter 186, A&P aircraft mechanic with Inspection Authorization (IA), and SportAir Workshop instructor.
Electrical Volt-Ohm Multimeter
Dick Koehler discusses the use of a digital volt/ohm multimeter which is a useful tool for diagnosing electrical issues.
Crimping Butt Connectors
EAA technical counselor and A&P/IA Dick Koehler discusses how to use butt connectors and demonstrates wire splicing using a butt connector.
