Today I spent 4 hours deburring, edge finishing, surface prepping and dimpling the horizontal stabilizer skeleton and skins.
I did all of the dimpling on the ribs and spar using the pneumatic squeezer and the -3 dimple set. I then used the DRDT-2 to dimple the skins. I used cushions on either side of the dimpler to keep the skins flat. It’s great being able to squeeze the dimples quietly rather than hammering them, I was doing this while everyone else in the house was asleep. Can’t recommend this enough!
Tomorrow is going to be priming and beginning of the riveting process!
