Continued work on the Main Spar Fitting.
More Work on Forward Spar Fitting
I’ve spent more time completing the Forward Spar Fitting and started work on the Main Spar Fitting SNX-T03-02
More Cutting And Filing Fittings
More cutting and filing away at the forward spar fitting.
Horizontal Stabilizer Fittings
I started working with the fittings made from angle. The first part I picked was the forward spar fitting. This is made from a piece of 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 3/16" angle that has to be cut down quite a bit. I started by cutting a length of angle down using my hacksaw. Next I marked up the first cuts and used my band saw. I need to get a proper blade as existing blade only has about 6 teeth per inch and wanders a fair bit. After cutting the angle I next used my files to clean up the cuts. Again, I discovered that I really need a vixen file.
More Tail Ribs
I formed up some more tail ribs today. I discovered that I really didn’t need the holes in the leading edge ribs but they will actually be hidden. I formed the outer ribs for both the horizontal stabilizer and the rudder. I did these with only C-clamps holding the forming blocks together. This worked well and the parts turned out great.
Started On Tail Parts
I started cutting out the blanks for the small tail leading edge ribs and forming them.
