7.9.7 Dimple & countersink aileron parts

Tonight’s session was all about dimpling the pile of parts for both the left and right ailerons. Not many parts could be done on the big dimpler so I had to break out various tools to get this all done. The pnuematic squeezer for the more awkward parts.

Then I used my bench die and a hammer to get into the small gaps at the end of the ribs…

Finally I countersunk the counterweights and used them as dies to dimple the leading edge skins.

Not too long a session tonight but it needed to be done.
