-Nutplates installed on the forward spinner support and the backplate -Worked on a template for fabricating a metal piece for behind the prop blades on the spinner. In doing that I had to rig up a way to take the prop to course pitch to make sure the opening was correct. In doing that I discovered to my dismay that the prop is hitting the back plate - I'll have to do some research on adding spacers. The plans call for one washer and one spacer so I just assumed (there's that word ass_ume) that there wouldn't be a clearance problem. Hope this doesn't throw off my spinner mounting holes, but I fear it might - yikes.
Nutplates for the backing plate
Looks like a torture device for my prop - handles let rotate the blades
