Pics of Me Working
Saturday May 16, 2020
Today, the tap and drill for the flap pushrods arrived, so I got to work finishing them. I drilled a 5/16" hole in a 2x4" to hold the tubing and then drilled the #3 hole in the end.
Then I laboriously tapped both ends of each pushrod, which took quite a while, but the threads came out straight and looking very good.
Then I worked on enlarging and shaping the hole where the pushrod exits the fuselage to attach to the flap on the L side.
This took a while, but with a good result in the end.
Here's a shot from the inside...with the flap fully retracted, essentially all of the pushrod is inside the fuselage.
Then I worked some more on the gap between the fuselage side and the flap top skin.
Next up...do the same thing on the right wing.
