Marty, I'd be interested in what you come up with. Any chance of getting the factory drawings/files for these things? What would be the issue?

thanks pionex. im waiting to see your results.
is there a possibility you take pictures of your SX wings? maybe measures? :roll: the thing is that it is imposible to find decent photo of SX wings. Magnum wings i managed to find, but SX wings, no go. just today i received an email from Austrian Hobie distributor (maletschek co). they have hobie 18 sx wings. new. €2500 - WITHOUT TRAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!. :o That is roughly $3000.
i could not believe my eyes. i can get 2 complete sets of sails for that money. no way im goin to buy new ones. im building it on my own, even if i have to design it myself.
and again, i will make sure to post ALL MY FINDINGS ON THIS FORUM. videos, pictures, measures. and it is a promise

Hi This is Marty
Both 6160 or 6063 can be bent with out annealing if you have the right bender.
180 deg bends can be bought from SHARPEPROCUCTS.COM for about $30.00 each if you can not bend your own. You can buy 6160 2 inch tubing or 6063 2-3/8 tubing witch is pipe. If any one can give me a drawing of the wings, I have the software to stress analize for both materials. As far as end fittings, I am going to machine them out of billet alu.

Just a suggestion : for end fittings or for any kind of "joining" two tubes think about using Ertalon or Ertalene. These are sold as plastic/nylon blocs than can be shaped quite easely in any form : a good alternative to the Zamac fittings.
I wish you succes with the projects !
Michel

I just measured the tube diameters on my Magnum wings for Mike F.

Large diameter tube is: 1.880" in diameter and has a 0.087" wall thickness.
The small diameter tube is: 0.990" in diameter and has a 0.125" wall thickness

Hope this helps those who are thinking about building a set.

If you want me to measure the loose end cap that I have to put back on now drop me a note.
