Brief Description: Dimple and rivet bottom fuselage skins
Dimpled the bottom fuselage skins and floor stiffeners. I foiiund that the Avery tool would not reach every rivet (see Image 2), so I had to use a bucking bar drilled for a set to hold the male die under the skin while I drove the female die with a hammer. I also deburred the skins and and stiffeners.
Then Judith showed up and we began to rivet the skins. Starting at the aft-most skin we worked forward until it started getting dark and I started to lose focus - it had been a long day. It was good to have Judith on the gun again.
