I am about to start on this new adventure and would like to know if anyone built a minimalistic set of instrument to build something like a poor man's quad (or hex) in Europe, where the prices and availability of instruments is different than across the pond. I need a minimal set of good quality instruments to get started and get a feel of the building process and then buy by need. So what should I look at and more importantly where to get (or which brand?).
I am about to start a quest towards my first build. I cannot seem to find the taper I wanted to do. Mike Brooks McKezie Midge 3pc taper, I have seen it at Clarke's and had a copy, but can't seem to locate it anymore.
