Brief Description:  Sanding

Having the correct machinery for the job saves a lot of time.
The belt and disc sander did a great job of of removing and epoxy on the surfaces as well as any gusset overhang. To take the sharp edges of the gussets where they meet fabric was as simple as carefully rolling the rib around the gusset axis.
Understanding that the Legal Eagle is an 'Ultralight" aircraft I am always concious of how to keep the weight to a minimum. Leonard's comments about saving 70% in varnish weight is another of his great tips. Running my hand over the plywood webbing and it feel really smooth, that is until I run the sander over it with the fine paper loaded. The plywood now feels as smooth as glass and is ready for the thinnest layer of varnish when the time comes. Each individual stick that makes up a rib will get a hand sanding treatment too.
