Hope all is well.
I was talking to Bob the other day and he told me how he makes perfect foam wing cutting templates every time. And the great thing about it is how simple it is.
When I heard it I thought you’d want to know, too.
Next time you’re making a template for cutting foam wings, try his 3-step process:
- First, trace the airfoil in pencil on your template material.
- Second, use a jigsaw or band saw with a small blade to cut on the outside edge of the line you’ve drawn.
- Third, use a sanding block to sand down the edges of your template just to the center of the line — so the line still runs right around the edge of your template.
Bob was telling me that we’re blessed with eyes that can be accurate down to the thousandth of an inch — and this technique takes advantage of that to give you perfect templates every time!
If you’d like more of Bob’s tips, including a demonstration of his entire 1-person method for cutting foam wings, then check out his 2-hour video at http://www.FoamWingCutting.com.
