30th: By the end of
the month, the left spar had all the pilot holes drilled;
made web spacers and center spacers for the right wing, and
built a crude tool stand from scrap lumber to hold the
bench sander, to leave more room to work on wings on the
main work table. Now that summer has come (briefly) to
western Montana, the garage door can be opened so the
builder can actually get into the shop!
30th: one set of
center and web spacers, on the right spar. I decided to
fabricate and drill the rib spacers before riveting the
spars, since two of the center spacers slip between the
forward web and the tip and aft webs and it was easier to
fit them with all elements movable.
drilling spar caps for left wing
spar. (picture is actually of the right spar, but it feels
like deja vu all over again--lots of holes.)
A trip to wisconsin (Madison, not Oshkosh) for a
granddaughter's graduation slowed building a bit, but did
manage to get the left spar #40 pilot holes drilled; need
to remake the root rib brackets and fit in place before
deburring, so the left spar assembly is clecoed and stowed
under the work table for now.
