The angle drill came in today. Having a real angle drill with various extensions and various length bits is absolutely worth it. It’s so much better than the angle drill attachment that we borrowed. I had no trouble drilling the remaining holes necessary. Lots of unclecoing followed.
Next up: deburr all those freshly drilled holes, dimple the skins, countersink the spars and then put it back together and rivet!
Berck: 2 hours, Jonah: 1 hour.
Thanks to the annoying wait for some more tools, we only worked a few hours this weekend. We did, however, get all the HS skins drilled. Once the new angle drill and bits get here, we’ll be good to go. I suspect I could just drill the corner holes of the stringer web without the skins and it’d be just fine, but the instructions do say to do it this way. I predict significant progress in the near future. No pictures, because nothing looks any different, we just moved a bunch of clecos around.
Berck, Randy: 3 hours.
