4130 Chromemoly Airframe Construction (2 DVDs)
Three EAA Technical Counselors (over 60 years' total experience) show you the procedures necessary to construct a complete airframe from plans.
Table jig construction, measuring, cutting, fitting, bending, tacking, and gas welding are shown in detail, along with the countless do's and don'ts which are usually only discovered by not only building many aircraft for oneself, but also helping others to do the same.
Small, medium, and large parts are shown and demonstrated in detail. See the reconstruction efforts on a wrecked Stinson Gullwing, and the methods used to insure its value.
What are the most-asked questions at Oshkosh Welding Workshops? Controversy of TIG vs. MIG vs. torch. Do gas welds really hold up in a hard crash? Preheating and postheating. Filler rod? Distortion? You will learn the traditional standards, the history, and what is appropriate for building and repairing aircraft 4130. This is a very detailed "workshop" program.
NOTE: All important welding sequences are filmed both up-close and through the special Welding Lens for very clear instruction of the welding method.
4.25 hrs. Two-DVD set. Digitally filmed, edited and mastered.
