Finished Prepping Flaps for Riveting

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
I built a couple of v-blocks to hold the flaps while riveting.

I clecoed the flaps together.  Andre is stopping by in a couple of days to help me rivet the ailerons and flaps, so I'm trying to get everything ready so that we can hit the ground running.

I spent probably 15 minutes per flap to get the trailing edge bend perfect so that the flap skin is straight from the spar to the trailing edge radius.

I also fabricated the other two spacers that attach the aileron hinge brackets to the aileron.  The shiny object near the left is an extra COM-3-5 bearing that I used for spacing.  I didn't take a picture of it, but the outboard brackets just use AN960-10 and AN960-10L washers, so I didn't need to fabricate spacers for them.
