Angle Measuring Devices
Building aircraft components often requires joining materials at specific angles. Charlie Becker from the EAA staff demonstrates the use of several devices used to measure and transfer angles.
Setting NGK Spark Plug Gap
Brian Carpenter from Rainbow Aviation demonstrates the process to set the gap on a typical NGK spark plug used in 2-cycle engines.
Light Plane Cable
Brian Carpenter from Rainbow Aviation shows off a light weight smooth operating cable system made by Odyssey for bikes called Slic Kables that is a great alternative for ultralight and light plane throttle systems.
Turnbuckle Chain Tool
Brian Carpenter from Rainbow Aviation demonstrates the use of a turnbuckle chain tool for tensioning cable turnbuckles.
