RV-12 Wing Kit - Day 1

Posted by Luke Ingerman on February 18, 2018 at 1:50 PM

Had a great morning with EAA Chapter 1114 at Cox Airport in Apex, NC. Went to the hangar afterwards and spent about six hours working on my wing kit. Got out the spars and attached all the rib attach brackets and various rivets as called out in the plans. Then it was back to the front spars to countersink 168 holes on the angled flanges. Lots of fun and made a mess. Ready to debur and rivet next work session.

 Attached rib clips and tip rib clips to each spar

 Installed other rivets as called out

 Countersunk both sides of the Stub Spar end and all 168 Stub Spar flange holes

 Countersinking the flange holes is lots of fun. a pair of 2x4s help in holding the flange flat for drilling
