Hello. I am moving my shop and have some fiberglass, an epoxy dispenser, cotton flocking and glass bubbles, Atkinson fuel view windows, and plans #1563 missing template copies.

I bought a house project when I started this and it’s been on the back burner...8 years later things have changed!

I am looking for $900 + shipping costs if it can’t be picked up in Central MA. Mike
Hello all. I'm in the process of building a Long EZ here in S Florida. Wings have been completed and moving on to the Canard and Main Spar. It turns out, Aircraft Spruce stopped selling the 3" UNI tape I had used for the wing spar caps. After many, many calls and frustration, it seems that they have no plans to re-stock this tape and have replaced it with another version. AS won't put me in touch with the supplier to ask any technical questions and those directed at customer service have been met with a "this new tape seems to be very similar" kind of attitude. This is not good enough for me. Wick's seems to still sell the old stuff but it's $4.42/YD. I previously purchased my 3" tape from AS at $2.45/yd. After my continued calls, AS finally put out a YouTube video from the supplier but none of my questions were answered in it. The video focuses on the locking thread. All I can tell from the videos is that this new product appears to have 35 strands and the older stuff had/has 27 strands. 1. Does anyone have information on where this stuff is produced and how I can get a hold of some without the 2x price increase Wick's is charging? 2. Is there any literature /information about how this new material compares to the older version of tape? 3. Has anyone used the newer tape as a replacement as if so, what are your thoughts?
