Dimpled Some of Right Rudder Skin

Prev | Next

After a late day at work, I had some quiet things I knew I could do on the airplane that still let me get to bed at a reasonable hour.

So I grabbed my freshly-drilled right rudder skin and deburred all of the holes I knew I could dimple with the (quiet) hand squeezer.

It’s been about 5 years since I last deburred a hole.

I clecoed the stiffeners to the skin to help have a more…well…stiff skin to work with.

Floppy parts tend to get dropped and damaged.

At the end of 30 minutes, I had a partly-dimpled right rudder skin.

You can see some of the dimples along the edge of the skin.

I’ll do the same to the left skin before getting the c-frame out and being loud.

0.5 hours. I forgot how much deburring with a drill bit in between my finger and thumb cramps my fingers.
