Task: Started HS
I started by using my Scotchbrite wheel to break the edges
of HS-609PP. I had to ensure the bend radius in HS-609PP did
not lift the reinforcement piece.
Here are both HS-609PP
on HS-603PP and match drilled #30.
I then attached
the elevator hinge brackets (HS-412PP and HS-413PP) to HS-603PP.
The also needed to be match drilled #30.
Here are HS-411APP
and HS-411BPP with the bearing piece (VA-146) sandwiched in
between. I had to match drill HS-411APP. Note the picture
below where HS-411APP doesn't have holes yet for VA-146.
Next I started the
font spar by mounting the HS-714 and HS-710 reinforcement
splices to the HS-702 channels.
Here I've matched drilled HS-710/714 to HS-702 #30.
Next came the shaping
of HS-710/14. Notice the black Sharpie marks 5 3/16"
from center on either side. This is where the 6 degree bend
site represents the work of Trevor Conroy and in no way implies
the correct or suggested method of constructing an amateur built
