#4 Forf Viscosity Cup

#4 Forf Viscosity Cup


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.

Maule Fabric Tester

Maule Fabric Tester


Thoroughly test the fabric on your aircraft for minimum FAA requirements without removing or punching any holes in fabric.

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.
