Me too! Three different Ebay orders arrived yesterday, a hex ER32 collet holder, the ER16 collet set to fill out the missing sizes, and 5 ER32 collet nuts. I need four more nuts to complete the ER32 set so that I will not need to change the nuts, there are a few collets in the set that are a real PITA to install and remove the nuts. I made the rack to store the collets in out of 18 gage steel.

My new tools showed up this day! This Maxxt bandsaw is just right for the space I have. I tested it out and it works great. I got this one because it can also be used in the vertical position. I'll build a bigger table for the vertical position. I also got a set of carbide insert tools from Shars. I tested the cutoff tool and it works great on steel. I was having some stress using HHS on steel. Works great on aluminum and brass though. Picked up a 90* cutter and a set of 0-80 taps for doing some more work on the tiny lathe.

Finally bit the bullet and treated myself to an electric fuel pump after years of hand cranking with an MPI. Even though I bought a Grayson PQ12 pump to build something myself I never got around to doing it… I was getting some 20ga servo wire from Booma RC when I saw this Brico setup. Had to modify it a bit to accept my current jug, and though it became with everything for a new jug, I reused me secraft stuff. Took about 45sec to fill a 24oz tank with a push of a button. So cool.

I have the same pump somewhere in my garage. Never did Mount it to a fuel tank. I need to take a hard look into what you are talking about there.

In the starting phase of building a 120 size Taylorcraft. A fellow friend and flying buddy we are going to collaborate on building two of them together. Drawings are being worked on and design changes and add ones are being worked on.
My fist purchase is a set of 4 1/2 wheels.
Note this plane will be designed to be scale. Good flying and painted. nice Easy flying with a lot of capacity.

Like a DA 120 or an OS 120?
