    Do you still have the roof? If so I'm in Canton and would like it. Thanks, Mike

    Made in USA drill press

    Take a look at Ellis, they're made in Wisconsin. I've got one their Model 1600 saws, I think I bought it in 1990. They are quality tools. http://www.ellissaw.com/drill-press-9400/ Mike

    Stuck -- What Would You Do?

    Sorry but I'm going to ask an obvious question. Are they left hand threads? Mike

    D90 Heritage

    It's a shoulder belt mount and is a factory part minus the upholstery. Mike

    Mine has held up well, been driven in the rain & been wheeled & washed a bunch but the truck is stored inside so it's not wet that much. Most important thing is to cut a generous radius on all the corners (1/2" or so), a square corner will catch on your boot and peel up easily. Mike

    Have you ever bought LR parts made by GKN? They also make the canopy transparency for the F-22 Raptor among others. Mike

    I used the Flex-Tred anti-slip from Wooster Products, it's pretty coarse but that's what I wanted for my sliders. I bought it Grainger but probably available elsewhere. Mike http://www.wooster-products.com/flex-tred-anti-slip-tape.html

    I leave the flying to others . . I'm a Manufacturing Engineer at Lockheed Martin, currently on C-130's, spent 14 years on the F-22 Raptor (2 working escape systems with the BFG seat & cockpit assembly) and four on F-35. Prior to that was a fabricator & structures mechanic for 14 years. Yeah...

    I've had good luck installing & removing grip tape. I'll have to find the data tomorrow but it's a MIL-SPEC product, it use's a clear adhesive backing while the non mil-spec tape I found uses a paper backing. I'll try to remember to look at the grip tape we use on the C-130's tomorrow...

    110 Slider Design

    It's not plywood, it's steel tube. The top of a slider can be notched & boxed to clear the door. Mike

    110 Slider Design

    Chris, I've been planning to build sliders for my ex-MOD 110 for years . . . one project of many. But I did find these photos on the web years ago and kept them. It's a good way to deal with the storage box. Like you I didn't want to cut the doors on mine. I hope this is useful. Mike

    110 Slider Design

    That tube passes through the frame and is welded to both sides, it's much more resistant to force from any direction. When I built the sliders on my 90 I used a tube that was a slip fit and long enough to reach the inside of the frame. Mike
