When I started the DIY Packraft forum, I figured it would help DIY Packrafters to meet new paddling partners and share tips, but I wasn’t prepared for the number of great ideas that would be posted there.
In my last blog entry I featured Eliot’s back band and thigh straps, and now I want to show you Bruce’s modified model airplane iron. It’s one of those things I wish I had thought of myself – like most of my favorite ideas, it’s simple, and I think it’ll make your model airplane heat sealing iron much easier to use for constructing a DIY Packraft. I’ve made a permanent iron modification page under the How-To menu so it’ll remain easy to find. Check it out!
