Gear legs with copper

Sanding...sanding...sanding. The gear legs and airfoil were sanded with 220 grit today.

After they were sanded, the first copper end was installed. I found it easier to make paper patterns first and trace them on the copper before cutting it out.

Here's the finished end. It's the top of the front gear leg.

Sorry I have nothing exciting to report, but sanding isn't exciting and I did a bunch of it today!
