Re: Dust Collection

Letempt, Jeffrey MR <jeffrey.letempt@...>
 

Jay,



I use a pretty decent respirator ($20-30) with replaceable filters anytime I
am messing with micro and there is a chance that I will be breathing the
dust...mixing or sanding. If I am sanding a lot of fiberglass I will use
that same respirator or at least a dust mask. I am extra cautious anytime I
even think about sanding CF. Keep the respirator in a sealed zip lock bag
when not in use.



I think it is a good idea to keep some air flowing anytime you are sanding.
If you do not exhaust the dust everything, I mean EVERYTHING, in you shop
will be covered in fiberglass dust. Inside your toolbox....places that you
never thought dust could get inside. A wood shop dust collector might work
ok, but for it to really do any good it will have to be outside because the
particle size of the fiberglass dust is so small it will just blown through
the collection bag. Maybe just an old furnace blower fan (I have one of
these that I am going to use the next time I do any serious sanding) with a
furnace filter attached. I saw someone use a make shift filter using a
regular house box fan with a furnace filter taped to it that they just sat
near the area that they were sanding to pull the dust away from them.



I also developed an allergic reaction to fiberglass dust when I was sanding
on my (Dragonfly) fiberglass landing gear. I was doing a lot of sanding
with an aggressive belt sander and thought that it would be a good idea to
wear some of those mechanics gloves. The fiberglass dust got inside the
gloves and with all the sweating that I was doing it caused some problems.
It probably took a couple hours to show up, but my hands broke out in a
serious rash that lasted about 1 month.



Take the time to protect yourself!!



Jeff

Jay I have developed an allergy because I was careless with dust 5 years
ago. When sanding the stuff got under sweaty nails and around the lenses of
my specs. My nails came off and eyes badly swollen . Its nasty stuff and
even now I need all the protection I can get. Eyes still swell .

Clothing gets contaminated with the dust also. Take care.

Hi Jay,

The couple of times that I've finished a Q, I used a broom and dustpan.
That said, I'm sure I've breathed enough glass/epoxy dust to last a
lifetime.

I've seen people put a breathing system in place (basically just a simple
fresh air mask) that I thought was a good idea. A full evacuation system
would be cool. However; this strikes me as one of those things where you can
spend the next two years and x dollars installing when you could/should be
working on your plane. So, guess my tip is to use something to minimize the
amount of junk you breath but keep it cheap/simple/quick.

Oh, the other advantage of some sort of simple evacuation system would not
being constantly covered in dust. Not too many things better than sweating
like a pig while covered in white goo. If it isn't a quarter inch thick in
your nose or all over the inside of your shirt and pants, it's formed a nice
paste with your sweat and is covering your face and arms..... Yum - love
that finish work....

restrict usage to on-the-ground. In an emergency, of course, do what

This is directly off the FCC (not FAA) website:

"FCC rules currently ban cell phone use after a plane has taken off
because of potential interference to cellular phone networks on the
ground."

http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/cellonplanes.html

But they do plan to change the rule.

I almost always carry one but always turn it off before preflight. In an
emergency I would certainly turn it on, but currently it's illegal to
use one in flight.

Several comments re cell phones:

1) My first flight instructor always carried a cell phone and said
she
had
used it exactly once to land in controlled airspace with radios out.
I
don't remember the details.

Several comments re cell phones:

1) My first flight instructor always carried a cell phone and said she had
used it exactly once to land in controlled airspace with radios out. I
don't remember the details.

2) "cell phones" include both analog and digital; digital includes at
least a couple of protocols. The protocol Verizon uses is called CDMA; in
this system every tower sends out a brief time signal several times per
second; the cell phone decides which signal is best and sends out a signal
each second "this is who I want to talk to." The system routers then
decide which signals to ignore. The problem with signals hitting too many
towers is system overload: the system knows which signals to pay attention
to and which to ignore but you still have to filter out the extraneous
signals. However, this is far easier with digital than analog signals.

3) One problem with digital cell phones is that they will revert to analog
under some conditions. This "feature" allows you to get some signal in
areas that only have analog service (eg: some resort areas here in
California have a single analog cell tower just for the town or
resort). See Craig Steffen's comments below re analog cell phones in the
cockpit.

My son once worked on a software project for a cell phone system; I picked
up bits and pieces of info on the protocols.

As has already been pointed out here:

The core prohibition is from the FCC, because it would cause your phone
to claim
an active channel on dozens of towers at once, rather than one or two
as is the
design.

The Mythbusters show on the discovery channel tried this Myth out (on the
ground; they weren't allowed to in the air). They built a device that
broadcast broad-band signal on cell frequencies. They couldn't get a
certified
aircraft to react at all.

However, they also built a mock-up of a cockpit with just some surplus
instruments. The digital cell phone signal (1.8 GHz or so) didn't produce any
results. However, analog cell signals (900 MHz range) made the VOR go
haywire.

SO...I think that depending on shielding, in a homebuilt particularly,
an active
analog cell phone on board could very easily cause the VORs to lose
their lock. This would be particularly true in a fiberglass airplane,
which doesn't have the
natural conductive shielding of a metal airplane.

I've always assumed that the cell phone jack on aviation headsets was to call
flight service to activate or close your flight plan while taxiing, or to call
other people while you're on the ground and the engine is running.

A guy contacted me, saying he has a virgin Q2 kit for sale. Here
are some of his words about the project:

"My kit is near Marietta GA, in back-in-the-box status. It is
naturally missing all of the liquid plastics, long beyond useful
life. It is a virgin kit, lots of peripheral things done, though.
It has an extra tinted canopy, some of the Q200 conversion parts
(plans & instructions, cowl halves, but no tapered spars, prop), 2
extra reduced size plans/instruction copies, a mechanical liquid
plastic proportioner, jigs, aluminum hotwire templates, construction
table, some QBA pubs. All in good condition. I'm never going to
get to build it, so it needs a good home. If you are interested, I
can meet you there to show it. I'm in Miami FL, 305-685-0000 (W),
305-502-3695 (Mobile), phlyer48@...<mailto:phlyer48@...>.

Please let me know if anyone there is interested in making an offer
subject to seeing it. There is a boat trailer available which needs
some work but will carry the big box & 2 or 3 of the foam billets.
I think there is a 4th one which would go with it. I need to know
if there is interest or if I should list it on ebay.

He is wanting $3000 negotiable for the kit. Go for it!
