Made/Drilled New Left F-684 Gusset
Today I went out to drill the right F-684 gusset. But....as you can see from the picture above I drilled it with insufficient edge-distance on the inboard edge. Since this hole is for a AN426AD4 rivet (1/8 diameter), the required edge distance should be about 6/32...and the distance was about 5/32 so I decided that I shouldn't use this part. So...I remembered I had a piece of .063 sitting around and decided I would just cut out another part.
And here's the new part that I cut out...
Then I drilled the part...you can see here that I nailed the edge distance this time.
Then I drilled the aft-most hole in each lower longeron so that I could hold it will get held into place while I drill the longerons and the gear web plates.
