Ready Your Plane with the Right Restoration Tools and Join Us in St. Louis for an Air Show!
We design, engineer, and manufacture machine shop equipment, tools and accessories in the U.S.A. In fact, we are located just west of the St. Louis metropolitan area, and we have air shows in the area every summer including at the Fair St. Louis (downtown St. Louis, and by the way, Scott Air Force Base is just a few miles away), Independence Day, and at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in St. Louis County.
Regardless of where you live, if you are an aviation restoration enthusiast, it is likely that you can use shop equipment and aviation parts designed for sheet metal fabrication. With the right, aircraft restoration tools and accessories for the task, you can replicate damaged fuselage, wing, or aircraft skins or create custom sheet metal fabrications. We have many parts that you may need to replace airplane instrumentation, dashboard gauges, electrical switches, or control panels.
Once you have your airplane restored and tip-top condition, be sure to investigate the possibility of showing off your aircraft at one of the region’s many air shows throughout the summer. Find an air show near you!
