|Week 17 - 19 Mar 2003|
Saturday morning is breakfast call for several members in our club. This past Saturday was very special as our machinist buddies Leland Bradshaw and Dale Beck had completed our tail wheel assembly. What a beautiful job!!!! The first picture shows the tail wheel in the retracted position. The second picture shows the tail wheel in the down and locked position.
Also contacted Precision Cut Kits this week and they are
sending us the wood that we were shorted. Rick is in Texas this week
for work so that leaves Greg & myself to work tonight.
Week 18 - 26 Mar 2003
Tonight we cut all of the 1/16" aircraft plywood
shear webs for the front spar and center spar. We glued all the ribs
and 1/16" shear webs in place. In past writings we were
thinking that all shear webs would be glued in place with carpenters wood
glue. Well......tonight we decided to use Ca Glue for the entire
wing. OH...the rib #1 is still floating! We are firm about not
gluing until we attach the starboard side wing center section.
