Dimpling Leading Edges and Tank Skins   January 4th, 2008

I finished with the right tank and the one other thing left to do was to dimple all of the skins. I bought a DRDT-2 from ExperimentalAero. This sucker cost as much as my pneumatic squeezer! After using it for about an hour, it was obvious it was worth every penny. Here’s what it looks like:

Normally, you would use a similar C-frame, but instead of using a handle, there is a shaft you whack with a hammer…painful and easy to put a hole where you don’t mean to. This thing is very easy to use. Just put the skin on it and pull down on the handle. I did both leading edges and both tank skins in two short sessions.
