My coho kit just arrived the other day and I am anxious to get started (got to bulldoze the garage clean first). My space is cramped, does anyone have advice about building in a tight space?
I'm in central NY and it gets kinda cold here and I'm a bit concerned about expoxy in cold weather. The epoxy book sort of talks about this, probably more than I noticed in my initial read through. I think I will have to go back and basically memorize the pygmy instructions and all the pertainent info in the epoxy book before I actually begin.
The instructions that came with the kit are a bit sparse (at least for me). I remember reading here about a book by Chris Kulczycki that folks recommended, but I can't find the name (server error in archive search). Could someone tell me?
Also, if anyone has a list of handy tools that pygmy doesn't mention it would help. I guess now that the stuff is here and I am actually faced with doing the work it seems a little more intimidating. This is probably normal (hopefully I'm under the bell curve someplace:-))
Having never attempted anything like this before, I am really glad this BBS exists. I just hope I don't become annoying before I'm done. At least I can't be shot over the net (can I?)
