Brief Description: Riveting the Horizontal Stabilizer
Tonight I finally started assembling things! I used a pneumatic rivet squeezer to rivet the HS-609PP bars to the HS-603PP spar channels. I also riveted the HS-412PP and HS-413PP brackets to the spar.
I checked rivets as I went using the Cleaveland rivet gauge. The rivets just barely went in to the -4 hole. Later I went back and checked them again using a micrometer just to be sure the rivets are within spec. All the rivets are bigger then .175 and the milspec is .163. They are all within spec and look pretty good.
