Builder Tip #33 from HomebuiltHELP 
Do we Really Have to Debur our Holes?

If you work with aluminum or steel components, drilling holes is a common task.  Deburring these holes after drilling is a necessary step that is not too glamorous in the greater scheme of building!

We take a look in this short why deburring after drilling is so important and how it impacts the strength of your assembly. Appreciating and understanding the consequences of this procedure makes the task of deburring more attractive as it results in a stronger, more reliable structure. See how we quickly debur these holes with simple tools and procedures.

Looking for a Fly-in in your Area?
For those of us that are flying, finding local fly-in events in your area is a top priority during the summer.  A friend  turned me on to this website that makes finding these fly-in events easy and fun. HomebuiltHELP has no connection to this service, but we are mentioning it here as it appears to be quite useful.  Here is an excerpt from their website:

SocialFlight is a free Mobile App & Website that provides pilots with an interactive map of literally thousands of aviation events; Aircraft Fly-in's, Air Shows, Pancake Breakfasts, Conventions, FAA Safety Seminars and much more.  SocialFlight users can search for events, add events, chat, upload photos, get email notifications, send event notices to their friends and even add events automatically to their Google or Outlook calendar.

(note: access requires initial registration)
