I just happened to hit on this thread and noticed that the builders web site says he's decided building is not for him. It's a shame to put out that much effort and cost in getting all the tools, parts, and equipment before finding this out.
Sorry to hear it didn't work out, Mike.
I suggest potential builders take one (or more) of the excellent EAA SportAir builder workshops before making substantial outlays.
There's also the Alexander Technical Center, where you can build your tail in a week, with their tools and advice.
