No work done on the plane today. I actually went flying....yeah, I almost forgot what that is all about. There is definitely a large sacrafice in building because your flying time goes down the tubes. I flew to Luray,VA (W45) and did the Luray caverns tour. W45 is one of my favorite destinations because the FBO has the nicest people working there. Fuel price wasn't bad either. I got a ride back to the airport by a CFII and I asked him his opinion on tailwheel VS tricycle. We talked for a few minutes and he seemed very enthusiastic about the tailwheel, but said it was up to the pilots comfort in the end.

I got a good tip from the Yahoo message board on color coding dimple dies/countersinks/drill bits - here is is:

Easy to do. One of the things I learned from -- I think Ken Scott -- early on was to get some brightly colored nail polishes and mark the #40 dimple sets, countersink cutters, and drill bits with a particular color as soon as they come into the shop. It'll make it quicker to pick 'em out in a crowd and also help prevent some occasional "overisizing" problems.




Great idea.
