Bending the F-729C Angle   September 19th, 2010

This little angle serves as support in the F-706 bulkhead assembly.  The drawings show how it has to be bent to 88.5 degrees (rather than 90 degrees).  So, how do you bend this thing by 1.5 degrees?  Well, I just clamped it to my vise and cranked a little at a time until it was about right!

I checked it against a square and measured the distance between the angle and the edge of the square.   I was looking for 19.5 mils, if you’re curious 🙂
