Brief Description:  Bending and laying bottom longerons

Now we're into fun stuff. The bending and laying out of the fuselage bottom.

Now, Eric said that he just used the bottom of his jig table to bend his longerons. I don't have that much room in my shop, so I went with Russ' method. I did the bends right in the jig.

The first picture shows me getting started. Note the square on the 45 degree cut at the firewall. I want to make sure that stays square while I do the bending.

The second picture shows the results after a couple of the bends. You can see the strategically placed blocks to help with the bending.
