Re: Cal25 rudder shaft
If you do that, be sure to remove and very thoroughly wax the rudder shaft first - like 7 or 8 times.
If you don't you will simply epoxy the shaft to the tube.
Also, once the epoxy has set you may find you need to lap the shaft & tube with valve lapping compound to loosen it up slightly - they can get so perfectly fitted that a film of water between them can cause a sort of hydrolock situation.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
