Do you make any other cowling for the J-3? Specifically, the engine cowling, less the nose bowl pieces? Best, harry Ballance

Hi, I currently only make eyebrows... Each set is hand built so it is very time consuming. Thanks

I need a set of J-3/C-85 eyebrows. Do you already have them made? If not how long would it take for me to get a set. Thanks

I could use a set for the C-85 as well. Do you include any of the suggested reinforcements for J-3's with metal props?

Are you the fellow that was in Kos., MS?

Do you roll a length of wire in the "leading edge of the eyebrows?

Have you seen the drawings by Len Buckel in the Cub Club newsletter for strengthening and reinforcing the eyebrows to resist cracking when using a metal prop? Can you produce sets with this reinforcement?

Thanks!

Yes,
I'm from MS just relocated to ID. I do not roll the wire in the front edge, I've found through R&D that a half rolled front edge is better to resist cracks. It places less stress on the aluminum than a full circle over wire. I also use 3003H14 aluminum which is stronger and more "forgiving" under vibration, this is due to the fact the alloy is softer than say 6061. I use solid aluminum rivets to fasten the front and back and the mounting tabs are pressed out .071 4130 cold-rolled steel which is extremely strong. Also, I use felt between the baffle and mounting bracket the soak up even more vibration.

I've been building and researching these for close to 5 years and I personally guarantee the baffles not to crack or fail for the life of the plane under normal use or I'll replace them free of charge no questions asked Period!!

Thanks!
