Drilling the wing plates
First step was to mark the center line of the rib and the spar with tape. Using a lower plate as a guide, the center lines were matched.
Then we used a punch to mark the hole locations.
The wing was flipped over and the holes on the bottom were marked the same way.
How many Jenny builders does it take to drill one hole?
I am kidding. The drilling jig worked perfectly.
While we were marking the holes, Glen and Brian finished wrapping the last two wires for the center section.
These wires go from the front to the back of the center section on both sides.
John Gaertner sent pictures of the aileron cable guides we asked him to build. The original is on the right and the reproduction on the left.
He also sent us the aileron pulley guides he made.
Lastly, I got a nice e-mail from Jim Landon in Denver Colorado. Jim is building a scale Jenny model and sent his builders website:
Look at the detail! This rib is the same as our Jenny rib but he has to use smaller tools.
Anyway, more soon
