Riveted aileron stiffeners

Category: Ailerons — Steffen @ 17:01 — Hours: 2

X-mas is over, so finally I’m back in the shop. I started out nice and easy though, got the stiffeners riveted to the skins, got the skins bent and made a cradle to hold the ailerons while riveting.

I had to make a new bending brake, the old one was too short. Besides, it had gone all warped from standing in the shop since last winter.
