Default RV-14A Builder Websites

For the last week or so I've been putting together a little builder's site for my RV-14 project. You can see it at http://www.rv-14a.com/. I'm a repeat offender but with a full-time plus job I won't be breaking any build records. I'm sure several other builders have left me in the dust. But that's good thing so I can learn from them. I'll post plenty of photos along the way. I know that similar sites were helpful to me when I was building my -9A.

How about a roll call of other RV-14 Builders who have started sites out there so I can check out their photos when I'm stumped? And make sure you keep up the pace if you're ahead of me so I can learn from your mistakes!

Default Website

I'm a first timer so I don't think I'd come looking to me for advice but I'll try and post the things I figure out at http://www.kcandashleyberner.com/

That being said, I'm glad you did this thread so I will be able to have a reference list of builder sites too.

Default Good squeezer idea

KC,

I already got a great idea from your site. I like the way you screwed the squeezer to the end of your bench. I've always wrapped a rag around the handle and clamped it in the vice. It doesn't always hold very well so I like your idea much better.

I hope you don't mind, but I added a link for your site on mine.

There is also the "famous" Tim Olson's website where he's doing something similar he did for his RV10 project here: www.myrv14.com

As with before, there will no doubt be loads of info from him as the build progresses.

Cheers,
Stein

Yep, nice site. I added a link for his site from mine earlier. I'm looking forward to more updates from Tim as he progresses

Thanks, I've put a link to Gordon's RV-14 site on mine as well.

Ron B, do you have a site or photo gallery? It seems like you're way ahead of the rest of us so it would be great to see what you're doing. Are you retired so you can work on the -14 more hours? Or maybe you're just working on the -14 instead of messing around on the internet!

Far from retired, self employed. I probably have 30 hrs in during the work week hrs ( 8 to 4:30). I work from 5:30 PM to 8:30 week nights. I come in at 8:30 to fight with the kids before bed (theirs), and I usually work seven hrs Sat and Sun. I'm not much of a camera guy, but I could probably snap a few and post them here if I can remember how to. Having just finished the RV-10 a few years ago probably is the biggest help. When I was building the 10 , I was spending as much time researching,as riveting to make sure I understood the instructions. Now I read them once and usually understand or already know the next step. I had a few questions that I had to call Van's, and some of them were indeed plans errors.
I did ask Van's if they would like to be notified of the errors I found and never got a reply. I'm guessing they want the guys ten years from now to be able to find them just like the guys now find them on the other models. Why I will never know.

Default Wing kit just arrived!

My wing kit arrived today, need to wait until tomorrow night to inventory.

My build site can be reached with two different addresses. I am NOT a twitter person, but I got a nice short one just in case I needed it later?

http://www.nicksrv14.com

http://www.n144.us

Obviously, N144US is my reserved number.
