"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #14
managed to get the stab center section planked. The picture below shows the
1/32" planking on the bottom that matches the 1/32" plywood stab plates.
I changed from 1/32" to
1/16" planking on top of the stab. The fin is supported in the stab slot and
I felt that 1/16" was a better selection. However, I did pick fairly light
1/16" sheeting to keep the weight down. The stab slot is shown below.
The fin is shown installed in
the stab slot in the picture below. I was able to achieve a good tight fit
of the fin in the stab slot. With the two 2-56 cap screws tighten down the
fin trailing edge is exactly 90 degrees to stab rear spar.
The bad news today is I broke
<Expletive Deleted> glasses %$#&!. They are the ones with no
frame. The Titanium ear and nose pieces screw directly to the lenses
themselves. I went to the optometrist to see what could be done. He said if
I would bring the broken glasses first thing Monday morning that he would
send them off for repair and promised he would have them back NLT Friday of
next week. :O< With my new lens implants, I can drive without glasses, but
there is no way I can work on the Cloudster. So guys, I will be dead in the
water all next week!........................Tandy
