Well, I needed a couple of quick handles for a couple more hare-brained schemes using PeeWee engines.  I like using the last style of handles Cox made when making .020 engine planes, but I've exhausted my supply of them.  I dug around in my scrap pile and found two pieces of 5-ply 3/32 plywood that were the right size.  I traced the outline of the handle on the ply and cut them out on the scroll saw.  Then I dug a piece of 3/32 balsa out of the scrap and glued that to the sides.  Should work great for the projects.  They're neither the prettiest, nor the smoothest, but functional for the few flights they'll actually be used for.  Unfortunately, the weather is back to raining again, so it'll be next week before I can paint them and string the lines.

Nice looking. You can also use different line spacings on these very easily.
