yes and that is per plans - i made mine 1.5 inches bigger to accommodate the t system and changed to bolt together method to one i use allot.

if you look at all the pics, you can see why it is hard to explain to a newby how the wings are made - it really is quite a complicated/easy to use system

the bolt together method is

drill a bolt hole all the way through, drill a capturing nut hole the thickness of the nut centered on the previous hole. the size of the capturing nut hole = the short diameter of the nut. set nut on hole - insert nut into hole with a hammer

i have never had them fail and never have to look for the nuts, no man wants to lose his nuts

We have no idea why they made such fuss out of this test, we are proud to report we have 100% success in our police broken into two catagories, first, 50% were very smart, second, 50% were very strong!"
His lament was that our manufacturing department was staffed by "strong policemen"

i was expecting a comment from you, but not on that part of my post.

the secret to the "T" system

Plywood is not straight, heck neither is most wood

it is easy to make a 3 inch, 8 foot piece of parallel plywood 3 inches wide on a table saw.

it is easy to make two of them

when you groove the center of one and tongue the edge of another and then glue the two together - whalla - you have a very straight piece of wood

the secrete is in the "T"

I've been thinkin about this lately and I think i can make the tee's extendable from 4 foot sections to what is need for the wing - 12 footers. This way i could ship them as needed.


Just wonderin if i should make a set of wing assembly jigs for passing around - can not imagine doin it the plans way

So, what was your thought on extending/connecting the 4-foot sections?

From the photos, it appears that you have 4-foot and 8-foot Tee lengths, I would like clarification on whether you had 12-foot Tee sections for your wing jig, especially along the trailing edge of the jig.

well, mine were the total length of the wing alignment jigs plus an overhang of about 3 inches per side.

for me extending the tees was a simple matter in my fully equiped woodworking shop, for most not so easy.

mmmm - hank may still have them in IOWA
