Recieved, inventoried, organized and stored the empennage kit.
Drilled the holes on the web of the rear spar. Started on the rear spar stiffeners.
Finished drilling & deburring the stiffeners on the HS rear spar. Drilled and deburred the elevator hinge brackets. Riveted the bearing to the center elevator hinge bracket. I will have to wait to finish the rear spar until I find some primer.
Fabricate HS-610 and HS-614 forward spar splice angles.
Trimmed the HS-602 forward spar channels, lined them up on the jig with the HS-610 and HS-614 splice angles and drilled the rivet holes.
Did some more trimming on HS-602 (front spar) and deburred it. See note.
Bent the front spar and front spar splice angles. Started deburring ribs.
Deburred and fluted ribs.
Cleaned, etched and primed all the parts of the HS rear spar.
Riveted the rear spar together.
Worked on building brackets to fasten the rear spar to the jig.
