Sunday February 15th, 2004 Started Working On Rudder
Rudder work began today. First order of business is to trim the stiffners to the appropriate lengths by for clecoing them to the rudder skins and marking them for correct lengths.
Here you see how the stiffner's are trimmed. The stiffener angles come pre-marked with divits. Above you see the straight line I drew from one hole to the other. These get trimmed along that line then deburred.
