Portable spray gun with a capacity of
16 oz. Perfect for any small touch up
job. Sprays enamels, lacquers, epoxy
coatings, zinc chromate, acrylics,
primers, and more. Detachable container
jar comes with its own cap, allowing
for safe storage of any leftover
paint. Cleans up quickly and easily
using appropriate solvent. Replacement
container jar available. Must be
sent UPS ground only. Can not be sent outside of
Can with the brush attached"
simplifies gluing fabric and
tapes to the structure. Pour
either the Superbond glue or
U500/SFMEK mixed glue into can.
When finished clean the brush with
MEK and attach the black cap to the
end of the can. The can will now store
the glue mixture. To keep the glue
from drying in the can, use a tire cap to
seal the end.
The Superflite manuals call for a
#2 Zahn cup in measuring the
viscosity of the primer and
topcoat, but with the conversions
below, a #4 Ford cup
is much less expensive viscosimeter. This cup is
made of molded CAB plastic, and it's designed to
hook over the edge of the can while measuring
the viscosity of the liquid. Here are the proper #2
Zahn to #4 Ford conversions: 17 seconds in the
Zahn cup is equal to 10.88 seconds in the Ford
cup; 23 seconds in the Zahn cup is equal to
14.72 seconds in the Ford cup.
Machine thread is used to
sew sections of fabric together
to form an envelope
or blanket. Over 10 lbs. tensile
strength. Packaged in 4
oz. spools, 500 yards. Hand
thread is used for hand sewn seams or large repairs.
Over 14 lbs tensile strength. Packaged in
1/2 lb spools, 250 yards.
Thoroughly test the fabric
on your aircraft for minimum
FAA requirements without removing
or punching any holes in
fabric. Accurately calibrated in one
inch pounds, tester should be pushed directly
against the fabric at right angle, evenly
and slowly taking note of its reading at all times.
Reading is taken at the point where the small
tube telescopes into the large tube. For actual
fabric strength, it is necessary to apply enough
pressure to break the small point through the fabric
noting the reading at that time. Store in box
away from dust and dirt.
Flush inspection plates by
Steen Aero Lab. Complete
assembly includes aluminum
cover, lexan ring, spacer,
aluminum retainer and machine
screw 6-32 thread 7/8"
long. Plate is 5-3/8". Instructions are included for
inside (flush) and external (near flush) installation.
Unique iron has temperature
control mounted on handle
(not on shoe) which allows
temperature control without
burning fingers on hot shoe. Dial temperature
accurate to within 3 degrees of shoe
temperature. Surface iron dimension 4-5/8" x 2".
Treated fiber sponge, 3/8"
thick x 6" x 9-1/2". Very effective
and fine sanding action. Use
with liquid detergents to
clean all metal & painted
surfaces. Use dry to remove burrs from metal
edges, finish sand fine wood & plastic items. Use
dry or with acid etch to remove corrosion residue
from aluminum surfaces and remove rust from
steel surfaces. Excellent for scuff sanding new
aluminum surfaces, epoxy primer and two part
urethane finishes to provide tooth adhesion. Recommended
as a cleanup after paint stripping to
remove usual stubborn spots around rivet heads,
All in one cleaner and polish. Safe for use
on bare acrylic, bare polycarbonate, and
coated polycarbonate. Tests using Micro-
Gloss were completed according to
ASTM F791 standards and to USAF
specification 16ZK002F (addendum2) at
stress levels of 2000 and 3000 psi in both
dry and humid conditions. Approved for
use on the inside and outside surfaces of
F-16 Aircraft. Removes swirls created by
improper cleaning methods, haze and milkiness
from interior/exterior windows, and fine scratches.
Provides a final polish, leaving you with an
ultra-clear finish. Can be applied by hand or machine.
Approved for use by Boeing, Spec D6-
52021, also approved for military use, NSN#
#6200 Pocket thermometer
accurately reads iron or engine
temperatures up to 500
degrees by placing coil on surface.
#11-Thermo5978 thermometer is 7-
1/2" long mercury laboratory grade 130 degrees
F to 400 degrees F in 10 degree increments.
With "roll-bars" roll into fillets and
under cambers. The flat sole is
for sheeted and open structures;
its beveled edges provide
constant head without
marks. The toe is rounded
and flat. Its special coating slides like butter, with
almost no adhesive buildup. The thermostat reduces
temperature drift to only 5 degrees. Iron
surface dimension 4-5/8" x 2".
Pinhole killer. Waterborne polyurethane
primer applied with a
foam roller or spray gun Fills pinholes
in layups or molded parts.
White color. Crosslinked for maximum
performance. Kit comes with
a crosslinker and syringe. Dry
sand for a smooth, pinhole-free
surface. Dries in 20 minutes, sand
in two hours. Clean up with water.
Three gallons required for most composite aircraft.
Kits include 1/2 oz crosslinker & syringe.
