Moving ahead on rudder

Hours: 1.9 | Posted in Rudder

Tonight’s task was the thankless deburring of the rudder stiffeners, and dimpling the same.  No pictures of this endeavour, the only thing of note is that I found it necessary to modify my #40 dimple die by radiusing one side, in order that it could fit into the inside radius of the stiffeners.  I notice that my (used) #40 tank dimple dies have had a similar mod done by the previous owner, presumably for the same reason.  Didn’t cause any problems with the resulting dimples.  Also begun dimpling the rudder skins after removing the plastic from rivet lines.
