Fuel Shutoff bracket & Turtledeck
I put the dado blade in the table saw this afternoon and cut the 1/4 in. grooves in the bulkhead support. Using the table saw made it easy to cut the 3/16 in. deep dadoes needed to hold the turtledeck stringers.
The bulkhead support will be glued to the first bulkhead later.
Using the bending blocks and the vice, the steel was bent into shape.
With the bandsaw, the flanges were given a 1/2 in. radius
And the bracket is shaped! Here's the bracket in place awaiting the lightening holes and the 5/16 in hole to support the rod.
Spent a lot of time making the mahogony frame for the baggage compartment, but after I removed the clamps, I was not happy with the way it turned out. My 45 degree corners were not as tight as I would have liked and the entire thing was not square to the door. So,I'm going to remake this piece. It happens.
