As mentioned in past issues of the newsletter, we have been involved in obtaining new strut material for use on your BEARHAWK project. This endeavor was initiated due to many builders request.
We have designed and purchased an extrusion die so as to produce the strut shown.
The struts are made from aluminum alloy 6061-T6 and heat treated per. spec. Our supplier has provided us with chemical and mechanical certifications for each lot ordered.
We have also designed new aluminum strut end fittings that can be bolted to the strut material. We can supply this NEW strut material and the drawings for the end fittings for shipment inside and outside the U.S.A. Contact R&B Aircraft for details.
