Elevator skeleton

Yesterday I put in a few hours on the skeleton.  

 
Here are all the parts laid out before edge finishing and deburring. The end ribs and counterbalance ribs on the left have already been fluted.  

 
In this photo, all the parts have been edge finished and deburred.  

 
Here is the skeleton laid out in the left elevator skin,  I’ve already drilled and prepped both elevator counterbalance weights and have set them aside. Next step is to bend the trailing edges of the skins so I can match drill the skins to the under structure.  

 
Here’s a close up of the counterbalance rib and elevator tip rib attached to the spar.
