Brief Description:  Trimming spinner for prop

I did some additional trim work on the spinner—now have .1” clearance around the blades. This is what the cut out drawing from Hartzell specifies. I think it will need to be closer to ¼”, but this will allow me to get it mounted. I used some 1/8” wide pin strip tape to mark the openings—a blue sharpie just didn’t seem to mark well on the glass spinner. I used a 2” drum sander on my electric drill, then sanded by hand to the edge of the tape. With clearance around the blades, it appears that the spinner fits around the forward plate--it also leaves about 1/8" glass extending past the end of the back plate. Next, I re-arranged my shop so I can get the prop installed—going to be a bit tight in the shop with the prop on, but I’ll manage. I set the top cowling on just for grins. Tomorrow, I’ll get the prop mounted
