If you take care of it, keep it sharp and stored correctly, it should last a life time.

In the U. S., the last fatal jet airline crash was in 2009. Here's a reference.

Those are funny little planes - they're wicked handy when you need one. I like mine a LOT.

They ARE coarsely built, not a "fine" tool, but they do a fine job.

Loosen the little screw SLIGHTLY, then either bump the rear of the iron (to extend it more) or the rear of the plane (to extend the iron less) against a piece of softwood (bench, sawhorse, 2x4, hammer handle). When it's where you want it, tighten the little screw again.

Adjust the plane's mouth (assuming that you're using it as a bullnose plane, not as a chisel plane) by loosening the big screw, then just sliding the bullnose front & rear.

Remember - planes are meant to SHAVE wood. The iron should NOT take off a thick shaving, it should take off a shaving no thicker than one sheet of toilet paper. The iron should BARELY peek out from under the plane.

Check to see if your pulleys are all in the same plane. Take a ruler or other straight edge and put it on the front of one pulley and then extend it to the nearest pulley and make sure that the line up. Sweep the straight edge over the next pulley while holding it firmly on the first pulley to verify that they are both on the same plane. Repeat with all pulleys.

Pretty hard to help you directly. 3" is a pretty small plane if you mean the length of it, and pretty big if you mean the width.... try Google images for "plane buck", maybe a picture will help. Good luck.

Why is maytag not doing something about this issue. I'm having the same issue with a 2 1/2 year old washer. I'm not going to fix it or buy another maytag. I'm going fisher paykel. My last one lasted 22 years.

v will represent plane's airspeed.

We can divide pilot's trip in 2 parts:

1.5-t=200/(v-30)

We also know that t=200/v so we substitute that into equation:

1.5-200/v=200/(v-30)

To solve this equation we multiply it with v*(v-30)=v^2-30v first. We get:

1.5(v^2-30v)-200(v-30)=200v

Now we get rid of brackets:

1.5v^2-45v-200v+600-200v=0

or

1.5v^2-445v+600=0

This is quadratic equation, so we get 2 solutions (sqrt= square root):

We can divide pilot's trip in 2 parts:

- first 200km, when he is flying with speed v. The time it takes him to fly this part of trip is t=200/v
- last 200km, when he is flying with speed v-30. The time it takes him to fly this part is 200/(v-30)

1.5-t=200/(v-30)

We also know that t=200/v so we substitute that into equation:

1.5-200/v=200/(v-30)

To solve this equation we multiply it with v*(v-30)=v^2-30v first. We get:

or

1.5v^2-445v+600=0

This is quadratic equation, so we get 2 solutions (sqrt= square root):

- v=(445+sqrt(445^2-4*1.5*600))/(2*1.5)=295.3 km/h
- v=(445-sqrt(445^2-4*1.5*600))/(2*1.5)=1.4 km/h

G o back to your manual. I had this problem also. The procedure must be followed properly. First, make certain your throttle is in the off/down position. Second, turn on transmitter. Third connect battery. Once you place the battery in the enclosure and lock the cover you should be working properly. Last but not least, when finished flying, remove the battery BEFORE powering off your transmitter. You must follow these steps. You can NOT leave the battery in the plane when not in use.

Are your arms big? Good, cause that is how you do it. With a lot of muscle. They have too many power tools out there now to make it easier. But if you want to do it the old way, you will need a handful of planes, not just one block plane. You need a couple of jack planes, smoothing plane, and scraper plane, to get a nice surface, the jack plane, 12 -14 inches long will go right over the bumps and flatten those edges right out, Keep it square to the edge. Look by eye and use a square to check. Your end grain can be done with your block plane, get it in a vise and take little cuts. Your surface is the tough one, it takes a sharp iron and a steady hand to surface a board, some woods don't like being surfaced, some do. Again, start out with the scrub plane, 8-12 inches, and run it against the grain to smooth, then the jack plane with the grain to flatten, then the scraper to finish. Rip saws are hard to come by, the teeth are at a 90 degrees to the saw. and wide, and you need big arms. The japanese saws have both edges on their saws and they work great. But you can't beat an electric planer. Hope this helps.
