Re: Plans Shrinkage

I think Norm Howell May have over sized his cores and then sanded them down to size but that may be a rumor.  As for the ones that were to small perhaps the hot wire was to hot or was pulled along to slow. 
Just my 2 cents worth.

Is there a reference length to confirm shrinkage of appendix W-6? The previous builder's templates are all consistently larger than what is drawn. Also, if I'm off just a little (airfoils are a hair over or under size) can the core be slid up or down the tapered carbon spar until it fits correctly? 

Or, should I work on other stuff and wait for the new airfoils to be published? 😁😀😁
