Front Wing Spar

January 5th, 2018, 2h

Worked on the tie down assembly:

  • Grinned the brackets to size, since we only needed to remove about amm.
  • Drilled matching hole with the main front spar.

We were not able to go ahead with the fabrication of the spacers wince we needed a blade for cutting metal for the bandsaw, so I ordered one to follow up on this work next time.

We started on the front wing spar, we worked on the plate nuts on the sides of the spar, for both wings:

  • counter sinking the side holes for the rivets
  • priming the holes
  • riveting the plate nuts
  • countersinking for the screws

Garage and Wing Stand

December 24th and 25th 2018, 10h

I got the garage setup for the wings by moving the work table around to make space for the wings stand where most of the wings work will take place.

I bought few items to build the wing stand and I got started in the building.  I am going for a simple wing stand design, with no wheels for now, so that it is stable for the build. I will add the wheels later on, once I am done with the wings build so that the wings are movable.
