EAA Chapter 284 will hold its April 2013 chapter meeting on Sunday, April 14th at 2 PM at Red Stewart Airfield.
The program will be a demonstration of a Kearney Roll Swagger. This is an alternative to nicopress fitting to make control cable and flying wires. Terminal fitting include fork end. eye end, ball end and threaded ends for use with turnbuckles. Roll swaged terminal end make a nice neat end.
I am attaching the newsletter from the Wright Seaplane Base (WSBI Newsletter Spring 2013 or click image below). This is a project in which I am invoked in the West Carrollton-Moraine area.
Chapter member Tom Johnson is nearing completion of his Steen Skybolt. Hopefully we will get an opportunity to see it soon. Tom is also appearing in a reality program on the Discovery Channel called “The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius” Fir the trailer and a description of the series see the Discovery Channel web site: http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/the-big-brain-theory It appears to be kind of an amped up “Junk Yard Wars”. The first episode airs Wednesday, May 1st at 10 PM
Program description from the Discovery Channel web site:
The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius will feature a seemingly impossible engineering challenge to be solved by the contestants each week. Competitors will have just 30 minutes to come up with a solution using their own intellect to complete the challenge. Based on logic and design, the expert panel of judges will determine the best engineering concept and select two captains to lead their team to execute the project. The team with the best design will remain safe, but the losers will face the judges who will determine which member will be eliminated.
