Elevator construction

Well, the number 10 ferrules arrived yesterday. At the top of the picture, you can see the difference between to two ferrules. The number 10's are bigger.

Thankfully, Doc Hood of Camarillo CA (soon to be Oregon) was smart enough to make up a few gazillion of these things and made them available to us "wire guys" who need them. Thanks, Doc!

Back to the shop. Made the last four tabs on elevator #2. Here's a picture of one of them. They were brazed and given a trial fit as well. Sorry I didn't take more pictures, but you have seen enough of the tabs on elevator number 1.

Back at it tomorow morning. Plan on cleaning up the tabs and primer painting everything. Then the fun begins - making the control horns.
