Nose Rib Preparation

Posted on Updated on

The nose ribs need to be prepared before they are glued onto the front spar.

Ribs 2,3,5,6,8, & 9 just need 1/4″ sticks glued  to the nose ribs.

The #4 & #7 ribs are made the same except they also need a 1/4″ doubler rib added. Had to cut 1/4″ of the back of a 1/4″ nose rib for proper fit.

The rib doubler at the root needed the top modified to make room for the gusset and carry through bracket.

The root and tip doublers were glued to the outer plywood skin. The other ribs were allowed to dry and will be glued on in the next operation.
