New Book for Sheet Metal Builders
EAA’s continuing “how-to” series of educational materials for building your own aircraft now includes, Sheet Metal Building Basics, written by longtime builder and SportAir instructor Jack Dueck. Jack is a sheet metal construction expert and serves on the EAA Homebuilt Council, the EAA Canadian Council, and is an EAA Technical Counselor for his home Chapter 1410 in High River, Alberta, Canada.
Joe Norris, EAA homebuilders community manager, commented, “We are making a long-term effort to revitalize our core building materials for our members. This book and our recently released sheet metal DVD are just the first examples of this plan.
Sheet Metal Building Basics covers the fundamentals that everyone starting a sheet metal project should know, plus some advanced material on stress and fatigue.
“I see a gap between the dreamer - making the initial decision to build - and the confident builder working along on his aircraft project," said the author. “This book is my effort to help bridge that gap for that novice builder.”
Also included is plenty of solid info that steps beyond the “how-to” basics into the “why-to” of the task. “I’m sure even experienced builders will find this book well worth the money,” said Norris.
