Re: The Seagull Box

I'm measuring a complete box by myself. I did have the ides to sell one of my 102s (dis-assembled) in a plywood box, but now am contemplating a scaled timber box in the Seagull style.

Re: The Seagull Box

I doubt that I could find matching Pine in Australia, but will get a construction list with dimensions of each piece, including bolts, nails and screws.

Re: Complete Propeller range pictorial database

I remember many years ago I was curious about the differences in props. I did calculate the working area of a few Seagull props .... lost the data some time ago. what did interest me at the time was the similarity of the pitch. So I laid a sliding bevel on a C100 prop and a 40+ prop. Century 100 5 b...

Re: Silly question?
