Re: Balsa,Ca and wax paper????

Hi Ken,

Here is an old/easy way to do it:

Get a candle and wax the plan ! Obviously not the whole plan, but just where you think your glueing might stick. Takes minutes and you can get it 'waxier' than todays wax paper. (last roll I bought was too much paper, too little wax !)

The backing from sign shop vinyl is also great at masking glue from sticking. (They throw it away...) It is not transparent though.

Good luck with your building...
(It is half the fun of the hobby for me.)

Take care,
Have fun,

Re: Balsa,Ca and wax paper????

Today's wax paper has two distinct sides. One has wax, the other doesn't. Make sure wax side up. Also as said before you may have the glue following the pins. This will show itself in gluing through to the plans.

Re: Balsa,Ca and wax paper????

My first thought is that you are applying too much glue, with CA you just need a little drop.

When I get the wax paper stickies, I run a thin wire (leftovers from a kit) in between the wood and wax paper while it's down on the building board still. Works great, just peels the balsa right off.

I have arfs, and RTF's as well as kits. Need something to fly in between glue drying!
