Brief Description:  Root rib gussets

After cutting the root ribs I aligned each rib on the full size plan detail on the drawings, and clamped the gussets in place, also using the plan detail as a guide.

Then I drilled one hole in each and cleco'd it down to keep everything in place. I have several scrap 1/2" pieces of particle board that I use to drill into, rather then into my work bench.

Now I could drill all the holes, deburr the rib and gussets, and finally rivet them in place.

By the way, I don't use my air drill for much if anything these days. My cordless drill does fine and is much less cumbersom.

With tonight's work I just topped 800 hours of total work on the project!
