Time worked 11hr

It took a lot of time to debur all the holes. After getting everything completely assembled I disassembled all the parts and “deburred ” the holes.  This is a process of cleaning the edges and all the drill holes to remove any rough edges that could later turn into cracks. To give you an idea of how laborious this process is follow this math:

  • Each side of the stab has 241 holes
  • Now there is a top and bottom
  • Inside and outside
  • Right and left
  • Matching ribs that align with the holes
  • Both sides of the rib flange
  • Therefore their is a total of 3865 holes to debur 

Once they are done they look like this ready for primer, dimpeling and riveting!

I also countersunk the spar flanges. I love this
