Tail Skid Bumper Plate
First, 4in. by 6in. squares were cut from a sheet of rubber. This rubber is tough stuff - it has fibers woven throughout. I got it from Paul Dougherty who used it for the bumpers for his Jenny. I believe he got it at an automotive supply store.
Anyway, the wooden braces had their final coat of varnish so it was time to attach the bumpers with some #8 brass round head screws. Here you can see how the tail skid touches the bumper when it turns.
Here is the other side view.
The second one is ready to assemble, but I ran out of time.
More soon. Enjoy
