Time: 6.5 Task: Made a lot of progress on the ailerons
today. Finished drilling and hole deburring all the parts.
Started dimpling all parts.
had finished the right skin yesterday, so I moved on to the
left skin today. I clecod the A-801-1PP skin to the A-403PP
spar and A-705 ribs. I final drilled all holes. I then flipped
it over and did the bottom side.
Removed the plastic from the skin and deburred all the holes.
Fabricated the A-708 reinforcement brackets as previously
done on the right aileron yesterday. I used the same cleco
clamp method. Of course it went twice as fast today.
on the A-407 bracket and final drilled the three holes to
#12 for an AN3 bolt.
Then I moved on to the left leading edge. Again, this went
much faster than the right side now that I knew what I was
doing. I used lots of cutting oil on the counterweight today
which improved drilling time dramatically.
I then deburred all the parts.
it was time to break out the C-Frame to start dimpling all
the stiffeners and skins.
the aileron parts after hole deburring and dimpling. Left
parts on the left and right on the right side of the table.
Notice the flaps on the gray table ready to be riveted. I
still need to edge debur the aileron parts.
Lastly, the skins have all been dimpled.
