Back to Horz Stab

Back to work on the horizontal stabilizer! I used all of the clecos I owned on this part...might need to buy more. See the pictures. I'm just putting the parts together to match drill right now. There are two spars that span the entire length and several ribs in between that all need to line up with the skin holes. Some slight movements or realignments of the parts usually gets everything lined up for final drilling. At one point you need to drill in a very small area so I cut one of my drill bits down for clearance. Don't forget to tape the drill head when drilling close to other parts. An accidental touch of a spinning steel drill head will gouge the aluminum. (3.0)
