I’m still trying to nail down a good time for continued wing skin riveting, so in the mean time, more ailerons.
But first, a little taste of how I like to walk the dogs. Or rather, how they walk me.
In the same vein as last night, I’m not really a big fan of drilling stiffeners. Maybe it’s because I’ve done it on the rudder and both elevators, but it’s just kind of boring.
You can tell it’s boring by my lame pictures tonight.
After about 45 minutes of that, I decided a nice small (15 minute) task would be to knock out the edge finishing.
Did anything assist me in that decision? Yes.
A pretty bad cut on my knuckle from dragging it across a skin edge. Ouch. (So far, this project has cost some blood and sweat. I’m sure the tears are on there way…)
Here are both aileron skins and the four piles of stiffeners, all matchdrilled.
1.0 Hours. I bet tomorrow’s post is called “I Hate Deburring and Dimpling Stiffeners.”
(Actually I don’t hate deburring and dimpling stiffeners. I can do it inside, where the A/C is nice and chilly.)
