Default Tools and costs


Firstly, welcome. And you can do it no probs. It is just consistency... Van's plans are top notch. Take your time, ask questions if uncertain and before long, you will have a plane.

OZFOREX is good for large payments. Can reduce the cost of transfer.

Shipping is a killer.... you can't really win there, however SAAA now has access to a shipping service provider...

For the large kit shipments, you cant go past Christine from C&H Shipping.

My opinion, the pneumatic squeezer is a must. Works for the rivets and the dimpling. If you don't want it after build, sell it. But IMHO well worth it. I have the DRDT2 and also think is a must.

Make sure you get enough clecko's.

And if any questions, please drop me a line. I am in Melbourne, aircraft (RV-10) located at Bacchus Marsh.
