Brief Description: Riveting the Stiffeners to the Rudder Skin
Today I began riveting the stiffeners to the rudder skins. I loaded all of the holes on the skin with rivets and then taped over the flush side with riveting tape. Then I laid all of the stiffeners for side one out over the rivets. I back riveted stiffener 1A. I had some trouble with my back rivet set and ended up ordering a new one from Cleveland. The one I have has a plastic collar that is too big to get right up next to the stiffener. I sanded down one side but it still doesn’t work as well as I would like.
