Polished AEX Tiedown Spacers
Today I started by polishing the AEX tiedown spacers and cutting them down to size. I then match-drilled the first tiedown to the spar web according to the plans and decided to go ahead and tap the AEX stock for the tie-down bolt. Well, I got it about half-way in and I heard a 'pop'. First I thought I broke the aluminum but after trying to back out the tap I noticed that it was broken! Arrghgh...
Needless to say I sent out an order the next morning for another piece.
I spent the rest of the night cleaning the garage and trying to get more random parts out of the crates. Unfortunately, my camera batteries died so there are no exciting pictures of my garage.
