Brief Description: Disassemble tailcone for deburr and dimple
While waiting for another pilot to show up for formation flying, Brad Ransom and I began disassembling the tail cone. After flying and lunch, I returned and continued the process until all the parts were disassembled. I trimmed the triangular section off of the right side skin. The specified holes in the F1006 bulkhead were dimpled. All the parts fabricated from bar and angle stock, with the exception of the longerons, was deburred and countersunk as necessary to prepare for priming (see picture). The hole in the aft bottom skin for the tiedown ring was enlarged. The remaining alclad pieces will be deburred and dimpled prior to assembly; I will be skipping over the bellcrank and battery mount pages while I await material to fabricate a new battery mount for an RG-24-15 battery.
