4/7/08 - The venerable Swag-It Tool for Nicopress sleeves that I bought from Eipper-Formance in 1972 or 3. I built a lot of gliders with it and if I had kids, they'd inherit it one day. I just donated it to Ken de Russy for his museum.
"In 1975 we and Hang Glider Weekly were proud to receive news and photos on and from Jonathan Dietch (HGW V3#16p5c3) and his Phrunobulax which he put up for sale. While he was a student at the University of Illinois, in a basement he sewed his own wing sail and made his frames. He used an ordinary Singer sewing machine. Else he used a drill press, hacksaw, vise, and hammer. Today he is flying again and generating entertaining and instructive hang gliding video. See his earlier explorations and some of his current doings. http://josephfaust.com/hgh/lift/2009/feb/index.html You had Otto number: Otto #11041 Jonathan Dietch" --Joe Faust, 01/21/09
