Coppering on Seat Rail

I had gained a helper today when I announced to the family that I was going to the shop and copper the right seat rail.

I tapped brass nails into copper and spruce.

He beat finishing nails into some old scrap pine.

A pulley attaches to the seat rail here. Both pieces of wood have a common copper piece.

Ready to be drilled.

The finished rail ready for the final varnish coat.

Brighton was quick to point out my mistakes.

And he helped put the rail back into place.

We also coppered the bottom of the seat rail supports.

The Jenny at the Golden Age Air Museum is nearly ready to fly. Paul sent me these pictures the other day. I really enjoyed seeing them and I figured you would also.

Here's another shot. They are working on the OX-5 right now.
Good Jenny day.

Greetings Brian,

In the header of your blog you invite contact but there is no contact information on the profile page.

I just came across your blog today and will be reading it from the beginning.

I am considering a scratch built JN-4D project my self but have not been able to find plans/build information yet. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

I love the blog and will be a regular reader.
