F2CN Shutoff by Dave Hull Prop Trimming Jig by Bill Lee

Wayne Trivin was an absolute genius! He never hesitated to try and do anything, and always made it right. Wayne created a website where he wrote up a jillion different things, and when, sadly, Wayne died in 2005, NCLRA captured his site and has (and will!) preserve it. Here are some direct links to Wayne's write-ups, or you can visit his main page here.
