Re: Gap Seal

steve <sham@...>
 

Jim,
I read an article about a year ago about how the Germans create a "gap seal" on their hand crafted composite gliders.
I took duct tape and ran 1 layer the length on the back radius of my control surfaces ie rudder, elevators and aleirons. Then one layer of clear packing tape. Filled in the channel with micro...the reinstalled the control surface. took a squegee and cleaned off the surface.
Move the surface back and forth, let it set up. Then take the control surface off and remove the tape. Lightly sand the rough spots and then reinstall the surface.
You end up with about 1/16 of an inch clearance. Makes a real nice fit.

Steve,

Where do I get gap seal? Does it go on top and bottom of elevator
and aileron?

Steve,

I too have done a little research in this area. Rulon makes many
types of bearing materials for industrial, medical and food
equipment applications.

Rulon "LR" is maroon in color and "J" is dull gold. I used LR
for
the inboard bearings and J for the outer bearings. I'm doing
this to
compare the two materials for wear and tear and longest life.
Both
have a 0% water absorbtion rate in 24 hours and excellent
heating/cooling qualities. LR has been around for a long time
and
typically used as a bearing material. J is also used as a
bearing
material and is suppose to work better with mild steel.

I will be happy to work with Doug and publish a report when I
get a
little time on the bearings and can make a definitive statement.

In the meantime, there are many suppliers of this stuff but most
have minimum orders or are higher priced than the vendor I
suggested.

Farnam and I disagree on what is acceptable and what is not
regarding looseness but I think this is an area on the Q that
needs
improvement. I don't want any vibration in my control surfaces
and
the fact that the fixed steel surfaces are wearing is not good.

My airplane now has very smooth control surfaces with no
measurable
deflection at the bearings.

P.S. The Lightspeed 30 3G's work great and being able to talk on

Try Applied Industrial Technologies. Do not tell them it is
for an
airplane or they won't help you. Their website is applied.com.
The
local phone number is 510-770-1209 but they are a nationwide
company, formerly known as King Bearing. Jason is my contact.
The
part number for the outer bushing is DRJF040603. The inner
bushing
is BJ4F081208.

Since I have not tried these bushings for any length of time I
cannot vouch for their reliability. Hope this helps. There is
no
minimum order.

Guys,

I saw a Glasair III at Oshkosh in 2004 that had gap seals about 3/4-1"
wide that were made of thin white plastic. One half of the seal had
tape underneath and was stuck to the main part of the wing, the other
half simply went across the gap and rested on the control surface. The
plastic gap seal had a slight bend at center line to keep it tight to
the control surface. I would rally like to find the manufacturer.

Does anyone have any flying experience with gap seals on a Q200? If so
how well did it work and what were the results?

Thanks,

Jim, I found a source for Rulon bushing at San Diego
Plastics. They have minimum orders of $75.00 Have you got a
better source??

As I said earlier, I've checked all the Quickies around this
airport,
including Farnams' and they all have a fair to good amount of

depending on hours of usage. Has any one flown with the
Teflon

Jim,
Could you put an article and pictures in the newsletter of the bushings that you used. I am interested and would like to be clear on the technique and ordering sizes etc.

P.S. Thanks to you and all the guys that advised me on the Garmin 296. Should be mine by next weekend!

Try Applied Industrial Technologies. Do not tell them it is for an

local phone number is 510-770-1209 but they are a nationwide
company, formerly known as King Bearing. Jason is my contact. The
part number for the outer bushing is DRJF040603. The inner bushing
is BJ4F081208.

Since I have not tried these bushings for any length of time I
cannot vouch for their reliability. Hope this helps. There is no

Leon do you have the metal parts for an LS1 canard? Like the center

Been a while since I messed with the Q2/200. Do you have the QAC part

Re: oval tailspring into square attach using urethane/rubber or...

damiantwinsport@...
 

Wes, I think I understand your concern about moving crippling point to spring and away from clamp or mount. There are lots of urethanes available in the shore A of 45-75 range. they are part A+B and can be poured into mold. There would have to be some sort of mechanical bond as the peel strength is not to good.

Subject: [Q-LIST] oval tailspring into square attach using urethane/rubber
or...


Hi again -

Anyone know of good materials for casting a tailspring shock mount?

I'm attaching a modified Aviation Products (Ojai) tailwheel to my
wide/oval dragonfly spring. I had the AP square/channel attach welded
to make a rectangular hole about 1/16-1/8" bigger than the dragonfly
spring (5/8" tall, ~1" wide, round sides), so now I am making a shock
mount for the gap. Initially I considered composite/epoxy, but it
seems like a good place for a bit of flex, i.e., a hard rubber. But
so far all I can find by way of materials is TAP plastics mold-making
urethane (http://www.tapplastics.com/shop/product.php?pid=63), said to
be about as hard as household silicone seal, which doesn't seem hard
enough.

Alternatives: building or cutting rubber sheets or tubing has turned
out to be too imprecise. A solid block of rubber/urethane
machinee/cut to shape might work, but I can't find one - maybe I
should look for a really big solid rubber wheel. I considered mixing
the urethane with ground rubber to increase the hardness, but that
sounds a bit untested for a critical component. If I had an
easily-reversible composite solution I might start there and return to
the shock mount later.

So: am I wrong that the TAP urethane won't be hard enough? Are there
better approaches/solutions or sources?

Thanks -
Wes
