A place where restoration project-type threads can go to avoid falling off the main page in the WIX hangar. Feel free to start threads on Restoration projects and/or warbird maintenance here. Named in memoriam for Gary Austin, a good friend of the site and known as RetroAviation here. He will be sorely missed.

Is there anyone out there custom cutting stencils? I'm not looking for computer cut vinyl, or mask, but good old fashioned oilboard. 1/2 and 1 inch preferably.
If not, is there enough of a market to amortize buying a stencil cutter?

Shoot me a e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a 1/2, 3/4 and 1" marsh stencil machines. I love em and use them all the time:)

Have you got the US wartime stencil font (fonts?) for your machine?

As in the ww2 font seen on vehicles?? These are standard stencil font. The machines are made by Marsh.

Comparing modern US military stenciling to some of the surviving maintenance instruction stenciling on my BT-13, it looks like some of the individual letters have changed a bit. The wartime lettering looks more block-like, sort of a simpler looking font (to me, anyway, but it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.) I'll see if I can find a few examples and scan and post them. What era are your machines from?

They are atleast 20+ years my guess. Send me the scan of what you find. I hope to snag a 1/4" machine soon

Dan, is this what you’re talking about? Here’s a T-28 outer wing panel that we haven’t done anything to yet. The 1” CAUTION has a bit of a radius on the A and N, while the smaller font is "blockier". (if that's a word)

How tall is the "CAUTION"?
