Greetings,
I am in need of four 36” long pieces of trailing edge material. Was curious if anyone had any left over short pieces before I order a couple long pieces from Spruce. Will be used on a Waco RNF project.
Thank you.
Jim C

Don’t get them from spruce. They are too soft and will bend when you tighten the fabric. Call dusters and sprayers......

Thanks. These are actually for aileron repairs. The span between supports is pretty short and only a few inches of unsupported fabric to tension them. I will check with dusters and sprayers if no one has any left over pieces. Not looking for a freebie, just thought someone might have some leftovers.
Thanks,
Jim C

What did you have there before Jim? Mine had a narrow brass channel held in place with brass strips. It’s been awhile but I think I recall some brazing and nails. I used brass screws if I recall.

We can get you a drawing that will show all dimensions.

This is the only photo I have.
