Control Stick sockets

John Gaertner sent me these pictures of the stick socket castings being machined at his shop.

First, he milled the face flat

And drilled the hole for the tapered pin clasp. This will be threaded eventually.

He also milled the top end square.

The side "ears" also needed to be milled square.

I'll post more pictures as the machining process continues.

My friend and fellow Bucker Jungmann owner John LaBarre sent me pictures of his new reproduction Sidcot suit.

John got the reproduction suit from Blue Swallow Aircraft.

More soon. Enjoy
