Rudder Horns

And then there were two! The second rudder horn was welded, ground and sanded today. Here's a picture with the original Curtiss drawing. It would have been easier if the drawing was to scale, but it was not.

Next step is to cut the 83 degree angle on the base of the horn and weld to the lower .040 plate. Also, the rudder horn is different than the other horns because of a .020 doubler that will be brazed to the top. More later
