Riveting the Horizontal Stabilizer   April 19th, 2006

I finished squeezing the last few rivets in the spar using Bruce’s squeezer, and then got to work on assembling the HS for riveting. I made some simple wood cradles out of plywood and duct tape so I could stand the pieces up on the workbench.

Fabiola helped me shoot the rivets along the center rib, but said she was too sweaty for pictures, so no pictures of the riveters this time.

Now I need to get a small enough bucking bar to fit the front spar channel, so we can do those rivets.
