Official Wayne Keith Design Reference - I would like to see a new “sticky” topic in the premium section called something like the “official design reference.” What I am thinking of is a thread which takes Wayne’s book as the starting point (version 1.0) and is updated with any changes that are officially endorsed by Wayne since the book came out.
Just as an example, I recall being active on the forum around the time that the angle iron pieces were adopted as a recommended way of implementing the jets, relative to the older design (I think that change made it into the book).
But what about officially endorsed changes and improvements that have been adopted / recommended by Wayne since the book came out? In wading around in all the threads, I have gleaned a few. For example, the adoption of removable cooling tubes. But are there others? I don’t know, because I haven’t read every thread that has been published over the last two years since I was last active on the web site.
I guess what I have in mind here is changes that Wayne has actually adopted, tested, and is recommended as part of the current version of the “stable design.”
I am kind of thinking of how versioning works in the open source software community, where every so often, a new version number is issued to the current stable release.
Similarly, it might also be nice to have have an “experimental” fork to the reference design, where Wayne summarizes the things he is “beta testing” but is not yet ready to recommend as part of the stable reference design until testing is complete.
