Curtiss Jenny Restoration

Welcome! We hope you enjoy following the restoration process of a 1918 Curtiss JN4D Jenny. Once completed, the aeroplane will be flown and displayed at the Candler Field Museum in Williamson GA (30 miles south of Atlanta). You can contact me below by clicking on "VIEW MY PROFILE"

Station 11

Brazed the last two universal fittings yesterday.

Here's the simple bending jig (the same size as the longeron). A piece of masking tape holds the flat fitting in place while you get everything lined up.

Give it a tap or two....rotate it around and tap some more.

Here's the finished fitting in place at Station 11. The tail skid will mount here later.

Till next time
