Cub Work Session #67

Yet another good turnout resulted in a lot being accomplished today. Jerry's son arrived with welding equipment, He made short work of attaching the clips that will hold the new bottom stringer to the airframe. Having this bottom stringer is actually a modification from the original design. It helps channel any moisture that may get into the fuselage to drain out at the tail rather than collect along the lower longerons. Using the torch and wire brush method, paint was removed from several of the tail frames. There is still some more of that to be done. Meanwhile, an inventory and organization of the multitude of parts that go into the control system continued. In spite of our best efforts to keep things organized, a few parts seem to have mysteriously disappeared. The next work session will be Wednesday, March 15th at 9:30. We hope to finish cleaning paint off the tail feathers and continue working out the control system. With the tail feathers complete, we plan to schedule the blasting and priming of the fuselage, struts, and tail feathers the following week.
