    flox

    Hi Guys Due to the virus, I am stuck on Maui until a vaccine is available. I am much too old to "chance it" . We have had 1 or 2 virus cases in the last week or two. YES, Maui because, I was a Hawaii state employee for years and own this home. Usually we live in my wife's house from April 1st to late November. I guess I will get back to KOLM in the Spring (I hope). The Longeze is sitting there. The problem: I must make some flox. I can buy most of what I need from Fiberglass Hawaii Maui but they just carry "milled fibers". I am pretty sure those are glass, as I have the same thing in my hangar at OLM. I also have cotton fibers at OLM but I cannot find the order number to get some from ASSC. My brain is much older than yours so I cannot remember how I ordered the cotton fiber I used to make flox. I always just turned to the right page in the catalog. My references are all in the hangar and I am over 2500 miles away. IF you are curious: I have a large lot with trees. One is an Avocado tree that is close to 50' high. Around mid November the avocados will start falling. At my age I am not going to climb a 50' tree to harvest several dozen avocados. So i have a plan: a net to catch them. They fall with enough force that twice an avocado has broken a windshield; I have told my renter to not park under the tree. I have 3 nets that I will arrange under the tree. I got those from MacMaster-Carr and got nets that are resistant to UV. HOWEVER I found that the fine material (Polypropylene?) has NO edging. So I must make a strong edge of fiberglass and/or a strip of lumber. I have epoxy and hardener but no cotton fiber. I guess I could use the "milled fiber" that Fiberglass Hawaii has in stock. Don't really know how that would work. I have a few tall vertical metal pipes already in cement to hold the edges. And limbs and ropes will hold some edges. These are LARGE avocados. In good years I get close to 100 of them and every one is smashed when they hit the ground, the concrete driveway, or my renter's car. They fall from 10' to 50'. Potentially I can sell them (if they are not damaged) to a Mexican restaurant in Makawao. I am just afraid that a dozen will fall in one day and destroy my net. And the fall from Thanksgiving to late January. BTW I am at 1200'. The poor guys at sea level are getting temperatures of 90 to 94 every day. Yes, even in late October. They had 4 or 5 record days in the last 30 days. Thanks for reading this far.
