Building trimtab

Category: Elevators (Total 38h) — Steffen @ 23:47 — Hours: 2.5

Tonight I started building the trimtab. I primed the parts last friday after work, so everything was ready.

First I made a bending form, for ending the trimtab end tabs. I bended the outboard end first…

..then the inboard.

With the tabs bended, I could rivet on the trimtab spar,..

..and control bracket.

I began to adjust and fit the trimtab to the elevator, but it was getting late so I desided to wait until tomorrow.
