Station 7,8,9, 10, 11

The rear stations were completed today. Lots of sawdust from bandsawing, sanding and routing. Here's station 8 in the routing table. I used a long triangular block to get the router angle I needed.

Here are the 5 stations in place.

I began work on Station 11 Upper Brace. This piece is the upper attach point for the tail skid.

Using the bandsaw, I cut the lower section out of steel.

The main brace is 3/4 X 3/4 square tubing. I cut that with a 16 degree taper on both ends. These two pieces will be finish filed straight and smooth and then welded together. You'll have to wait until later to see them together. I have to run in to work this evening.

Till then
