Default Hot Wings

Mike, you now know how this works, you can't comment on perfection
But you can jump up and down if you see something bad,or strip some one naked if you need a life boost(not that anyone here would do that)
as a side note, they look Fabulous

Doesn't mean no one noticed, Mike. For example, I forwarded the thread to a builder who's about to build his wing jigs. People do see and appreciate this stuff.

Besides, often a lack of comment indicates that this is good, and nobody has any argument with it.

Should have made two sets. I could have used one to align my wings to the spar this weekend.

That's about the best set of wing jigs i have ever seen - bar none.

But, why is the glass going in the wrong direction ?

Just kidding !

well - the only thing they could have helped you with is setting the level board. you could have inserted a wing, put all of the braced "tees" on and leveled the entire assembly in under 3 minutes and then set in the level board, well ummmm - level. i'm surprised the original builder did not have it on when you acquired the wings.

Well I for one am still going through the pictures to see if you actually DID any of the work.

Thanks Dust. Your pics have made your process much clearer on how your system all fit together. It looks like all the jigs are built in quadrants so you can bolt together any number for the task at hand.

BTW, are the same T rails used to hold the jigs? Did you use Home Depot plywood or something better.

P.S. I would have contacted you sooner but this has been my first weekend away from the plant. Now if TD18/RITA will stay away from LA & MS maybe I will be able to go to RR. I've also lost track of a bunch of posts along the way.

UPDATE..UPDATE TD18 is officially RITA!!

I also want to look at few Cozy noses at RR about that ballast project we have discussed.

3/4 birch plywood from one of the big box stores - they do not carry it anymore, the stuff they have now "looks" better because it has more layers, but from a furniture point of view, it is NOT. but seeing that this is a jig and not furniture - perfectly acceptable.

i like "the good stuff" for jigs as it is far more uniform and straighter than the non good stuff
