foam

I know this has been covered before, but i cant find the post or remember what was said.

 

My question is finding the right size foam. Wicks, and Aircraft spruce carry the right foam but nothing is the .8mm or .2 mm long ez plans call for.

Do you go with the next larger size and somehow plane it down.

Ive been studing the plans for a while now before i start building.

 

thanks in advance for any help

If you go to the various chapters on the wicks site, they have a pdf file that breaks down the chapter into parts numbers. The catalog codes for the various foam types and sizes are listed.

 

That should help.

thats some very thin foam you are looking for. I don't think that is the size called for in the plans. if you mean .8 inch use 3/4" and if you mean .2 inch use 1/4" . they are very close in size and will work fine. you do not need to sand them down.
