Brief Description:  Wing nose ribs...

- Made a lead "slapper" to help better form the bent flanges of the ribs. The slapper is something I learned about at AirVenture last year. I melted a few pounds of lead in an aluminum pan on the stove top, and poured it into a long, thin aluminum "trough" that I made. Once cooled it popped right out.

- Made 10 more wing nose ribs (all that I had blanks for; I think I have 13 more to make when I get more metal)
- The slapper definitely made better flanges. The ribs have been more flat and needed less work on the flutes to get them so.
