Morning study time ambiance today

Caleb is diving in the tank at EPCOT

Saw this cool trick by Jon Croke of homebuilthelp. When working with large aluminum sheets by yourself, it’s easier to roll them up. Reassembling this wing after all the deburring and prepped work to rivet. Then done with this one. #myzenith750

I generally like metal work. Prep work is easier if you think “I get to” rather than “I have to”. #myzenith750

Everyone waits until November and it’s in the low 40s before they power wash the deck right?

Each spar has 101 holes to be drilled. Then again on the top. Then repeat for the other wing. Oh and since these are pilot holes that need to be expanded I’ll drill each of these holes 2 more times. 1212 holes drilled just for the wing spars. I fully understand the grin people have on their first flight. Gotta earn it. #soreshoulders #myzenith750

And flip. #myzenith750

Time for the first two burns of the fall.

Here we go again with riveting Friday nights…. #myzenith750

I’m thinking of becoming a weatherman. I called it almost exactly. The hurricane is passing over us right now. This far inland we have light rain one afternoon. Hardly even remarkable for a city that averages 40 inches of rainfall a year. I wonder what all the people in Asheville who hoarded bread, milk and gas are going to do with it all.
