In the following YouTube video you get to see the inventor and owner (Leslie Weinstein) of this fantastic system. He will walk you through how it works as compared to the conventional castellated nut and split pin method.
Without a doubt you want to avoid this outcome. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezNyqIZPsNY
Of course the technology isn’t restricted to just aircraft. In fact it had its genesis in the military. Keeping tank tracks connected to the tank to be precise.
The manufacturer holds an FAA Parts Manufacturing Approval and has over 1,000 aircraft models covered via STC SA00780SE. From Cessna 150’s, Beechcraft 1900’s and Gulfstream Aerospace Corp G-1159’s. Gippsland GA8 is also covered. Also covered are certain Bell 206 pitch change rod ends.
There are many benefits to the system but one of the greatest is its ability to greatly reduce vibrations that iminate from the wheel/axle assemble.
This next graphic shows the design as used on Bell 206 & 407 helicopters. There are several other STC’s under development including some of the bigger birds. In fact if its mechanical and you want to get it locking more precisely then contact us.
Hello Alan, I thought this might be of interest to companies wanting to know more about TL and other projects we are involved in.
I would like to share with you mischief as a kid back in my early years of growing up with no idea of the significant impact that would transpire many years later. Years ago, before it was illegal, the locals would ride the beaches in search of turtles laying their eggs. The eggs were then sold to bakeries and bars. I, on the other hand, was also out in search of turtle eggs, but with a far different purpose. I would re-bury the eggs on what is now my property, surrounded by wire to keep them from escaping or from predators devouring them (see photographs attached). When the young turtles emerged, I gathered them up and released them past the breakers. This was during the mid to late 60s, and a conservative estimate of the number of turtles that were protected and released by me would be approximately 20,000. During any given season, one could find 5-10 nests a night.
My wife and I have made a decision to donate this valuable property for the preservation of the endangered sea turtle.
We have been working on this for approximately 2 years in order to find the perfect fit making no progress until a recent aviation part sale. I have attached an article from the North Florida Land Trust regarding.
