I just found out that someone I knew from back in the late 1960s has passed away yesterday from COVID-19. So, that's the first, and I hope the only, person I know has been hit.

The aluminum cracks so easily.  Might be better to make new ones out of stainless...

Bruce who is they? There is no regulation for part 91 that says I can not. My A&P AI said he would fill out a 337 even though I could just stick it on myself and make an entry in the log book.

I will have you know it was 0.149984 of Mach of course that was a maximum.

 
Doing well preparing to go north to work on the Dragonfly at the end of the month.
 
I upgraded to a 406 ELT because standing in a field with the 121.5 going off no one comes.
 
Also submitting to surveillance program and ordered a Sky beacon. The tail beacon would not fit my tail light socket. Flying the Tri-Pacer up between the 25 and 30 Apr. under the veil of KSLC

Doing well no friends close by so staying isolated and have my P95 at the ready.

Re: Covid19

 

Uh...yes.  Our EAA Chapter treasurer whom I've known for 30+ years and his wife.
He took her into the hospital here in Terre Haute on March 18 and she died on the 26th.
She was 55 and a diabetic.  He is under quarantine for a week....grieving alone.  He is in a really bad place right now. 
The thing I came to realize is every day we hear the numbers on TV and go to bed....until one hits home.
She is the first loss in our area. 
I see this much differently now.  I see the families who have to suffer loosing a loved one and not able to be with them or say good bye or plan a funeral.
Yeah...I see this very differently now.

My thinking is that amount of difference will be insignificant. The fact that it matches the spar is a plus. The difference will be even less because of a little melt back from the hot wire as Bruce mentioned.

I just noticed the message title (plan shrinkage), so forgive me for butting in, especially if someone else has already offered to help, but I have a large format scanner, and if someone sent me a good "original" print and the proper dimensions, I could scan it and Photoshop it to be the correct size and convert it to a PDF for anyone to have printed locally and it would be as accurate as possible - maybe even as accurate as the draftsman intended.

What kind of percentage difference are you finding, Dustin?  If it is not large, it is probably not worth worrying about. Just so the level lines are level.
