Thanks for sharing the shop and the projects!

I'm very interested in seeing more of your projects. Fascinating stuff!

I'm planning to head to WW2 days in Reading, PA on June 2nd and I usually try to get a ride in one of the WW2 planes... So far, I flown in the B-29, and Bucket of Bolts. At other places, I've flown on the B-17 and the Ford Tri-Motor.

Default Bill, any tips for realigning the 4 way box blades....

My 4 way came with newsprint shimmed blades on the brake. I also found the brake fingers to be a little to sharp (cut right through 3003) so I sanded the tip a little. I have made my own blades with drill rod tiged to steel plate fingers for my most common bend sizes. Fred26T

Hi,
Not sure if you are asking a question on aligning a box blade, can you be more specific?

Thanks
