After the big snow storm this weekend, work was delayed this morning until 10:30am. That gave me a few extra hours to recover from my ski trip yesterday. Maybe I’ll post a couple pictures later.
Also, I snuck in an hour on the vertical tail this morning after a quick workout.
First thing, I drilled out the 5 poorly set rivets from Saturday, and ended up shooting 67 rivets in today.
Here I am setting some universal rivets.
Here are all of the lower vertical rear spar flush rivets.
About 4 of these didn’t sit completely flush after backriveting, so I’ll have to drill them out. I think it it because I am using some steel bar stock as a backriveting plate instead of a true backriveting plate. Also, my 12″ double offset backriveting set sucked. I think it is too long to really transfer the force. I swtiched to a shorter and it worked great.
One hour today. Set 67 rivets, drilled out 5 from the other day.
