Wires and King Post fitting
At the top.
Also spent some time working on the king post fittings. The flat stock as to be curved to accept a connecting rod and a turnbuckle end.
We did this by taking some flat stock the thickness of the turnbuckle end and round stock the diameter of the rod, heating the fitting with the torch and tapping with a ball peen hammer.
The fitting is held in place by a piece of tubing which fits into a slot in the king post. I got some 5/16 tubing and peened over the end.
Here is the completed end. This tube will be inserted into the fitting and the other side peened in place. I'll show some pictures of this later.
Well, instead of posting picture after picture of the fifty two wires we have to build, I thought I'd post some other Jenny stuff.
Phil and Patricia Mintari in Texas sent pictures of their Jenny. Should be flying soon!
I'm proud to say Ken Gulliford has successfully flown his Jenny model.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
