Builder Tip #18 from HomebuiltHELP 
Cutting Access Holes using Power Tools
We demonstrated using an Olfa knife to cut an opening back in Tip #14. This time we show using a popular electric rotary tool with a metal cutting blade to accomplish the same task. Both techniques have great value in creating openings in sheet metal aircraft. The choice is left to the skills of the builder. You may notice that using the electric rotary tool requires a bit of filing work on the edges as the cut quality is a function of your hand's steadiness!

These rotary tools can serve many useful functions while building your plane with their wide varieties of attachments.
Inside your Rotax 2 Cycle Engine
The series of 2 cycle engines from Rotax were ubiquitous back in the 1980s for powering ultralights and light aircraft. These include the 582 and 503 models as well as others. There must be quite a few still in operation as our DVD showing the tear down and examination of the internals of these engines is still one of our most popular titles!  Did you ever fly behind one?
