Cables and Wing Pins

Had some time today to complete the first rear rudder bar cable assembly.

Here's a closer look. Four weaves, four wraps and awaiting varnish.

I asked John Gaertner to make a set of wing pins for me. I sent him the only original pin I had and he made this CAD drawing.

Then he fired up the lathe and rounded the ends.

And cut the shank.

He will cut the taper and drill the holes after I verify the measurements of the front and rear spar fittings.

As usual, John's work is very nice.

More tomorrow.
