Bruce, I’m based in Mobile AL. I am still active duty in the U. S. Coast Guard so at this point I am not a business. I am just a guy that didn’t want to see these awesome little planes loose complete support. I was hesitant to take this on in the beginning due to personal bandwidth and my erratic deployment schedule. I have remained in the shadows to learn and gain experience with airplanes before reaching out to the community as a vendor. However seeing the email traffic and need for parts I am trying to get set up sooner than initially planned for high demand parts. First step was nose gear being that it seemed to be a hot topic. I will keep the group informed as we get the tooling set up and workable.

Tony is going to be the source for all the parts. He is the canard guy that has taken all that over from our shop.

Bruce,

 
 These are being fabricated from the updated fixtures designed by Scott after multiple failures of the original nose gear. If there are updates that need to be made to the newer style legs that reduce shimmy, please advise.

Hello Everyone!
 
 I have just completed all the machine work and bending of 5  new Tri-Q Nose gear assemblies. We will be doing the final welding this weekend and I hope to have them ready by Monday minus heat treatment. Two of these are already spoken for, so I will have 3 available. If interested please email me privately to discuss your specific needs and prices.

Re: Nose Gear for Tri-Qs

John Lewis
 

Greetings, 

Someone asked about heat treating the nose gear.  It is definitely needed.  4140 can be heat treated as hard as RC50, but I feel it is too brittle at that hardness for spring gear.  Aviation tubing is sold as 4140 HT and called pre-hard at RC30.  To take care of welding stress and get most of the strength in 4140, a conservative heat treat is to specify RC 25-32 and double draw for better toughness.

Hi Richard,

The gear legs absolutely have to be heat treated! But, for people that have the old style gear legs and want to retro fit the new heavier duty gear leg, they will have to match drill the firewall holes. This is much easier to do prior to heat treating. Once the new leg has been drilled and fit, it has to be heat treated. For those who are working a new build or a new Tri-Q conversion, the firewall holes will be pre-drilled and heat treated prior to me sending them out.
