Task: Mounted control stick weldments &
brake fitting doubler
Started the day by fabricating F-601TD, the high-pressure
brake line firewall passthrough. It is simply a .063 piece
of alclad match drilled through the firewall with 2 large
holes for the brake fittings.
discovering the quickbuilders didn't make a relief for the
access holes in the F-716 ribs for the control weldments,
we had to pull out the Dremel and tin snips to cut away at
the upper forward corner. They were not quite finished when
this picture was taken. To clean things up I used a sanding
wheel on a Dremel.
We then mounted the WD-610 control weldments to the F-633
mounts. There was sufficient free range of motion. I also
had to drill out the bushings in the weldments to 1/4"
for an AN4 bolt.
