Brief Description:  Right Elevator Final Assembly

I began work on finishing the right elevator by first finishing the bend on the trailing edge to the proper angle. the trailing edge requirted a lot of force to be exherted on the wooden bending brake. By the end I was basically laying on top of the assembly to impart enough force on the edge for it to reach the proper angle. however most of the time I was over concerned that I would ultimately put too much force on it and either over bend the piece or somehow damage my painstaking work up to this point. I ended up finish the bend to the proper angle usuing a self sourced pait of wooden blocks held together with hangar wire as directed by the Chapter 5 instructions. After acheieving the proper angle I next installed the E-713 couterbalance skin and secured it in place using the hand squeezer and AN426AD3-3.5 rivets as laid out in the plans.
