Brief Description: Most work was on drilling a hole in the instrument
Lots of participants tonight! Jordan Newton, Pete Taylor, Hannah Brown, Bryan Rohr, Frank Deak, Nick Rutledge, Jay Burgess, Eric Muehlberg, and Steve. 2 hours X 9 bodies = 18 hours
Jay Burgess brought his drill press and we made our first instrument hole last week. Work should continue on the on cutting instrument holes in the panel. We also succeeded in bonding the nut plate strips to the right wing tip rib and trimmed the fiberglass wing tip to length. We'll be able to bond the leftnext week and trim the left fiberglass tip. Hope to also fit the right tip and drill the mounting screw holes next week.
Testing the drill press set up for drilling the instrument panel
After weeks of preperation we have an airspeed indicator!
