King Post wires

Made the remaining king post wires last night. First step was to bent the piano wire with the bending tool, insert the fitting and pull the ferrule up to the loop.

Cut and bend the end.

The king post wires are now built.

In preparation for covering, each drag / anti drag wire got an anti-chaffing patch secured with wire.

Inter wing turnbuckles were safety wired till the clock struck twelve. Enough for one day.
