Task: Started assembling the left flap today
was great to finally start assebling parts for the wings after
spending all week fabricating jigs! When I inventoried on
Monday, I grouped all the subsections together (flaps, ailerons,
leading edges, fuel tanks, and main wing parts). Below are
the parts for both flaps.
I first clecod the FL-704/705-L ribs to the FL-703-L front
spar. The 704 ribs are all the same, but the 705 ribs are
marked left and right. I then clecod on the FL-702 bottom
The next task was fabricating the FL-706A out of AA6-125x1
1/2x2. One is required for each flap so I'll make both at
the same time. I started by marking in 2.625" from the
edge and cutting with a bandsaw.
After cutting and sanding the edges, I marked the 1.5"
side 0.75" in from the edge of the angle. These will
be cut and finished tomorrow.
I then started working on the FL-708 spacers. Drawing 14A
calls out dimensions of 1.875" x 0.625" out of 0.25
2024-T3 Alclad. The scrap piece I had was two narrow for our
sheer so I used a pair of tin snips. These spacers don't need
to be perfectly square, so I wasn't worried about the error
associated with using tin snips. The two holes that will be
drilled are really the critical aspects of the spacers. 2
are required for each flap, so I'm making all 4.
are the 4 FL-708 spacers cut to size.
