Left Wing Leading Edge Stall Warning

Prev | Next

Happy Thanksgiving!

This morning, while having a declicious cup of coffee, I noticed Jack and Ginger having a conversation while looking out the window:

Jack: “Ginger, what are you thankful for?”

Ginger: “I’m thankful for all these neighbors to bark at.”

(And yes, Ginger ends her sentences in prepositions. That’s how she rolls.)

Here comes one now!

Anyway, later that morning, I thought a little garage reorganization was in order.

I didn’t take great pictures, but this was a big step in the progress of the project. I moved the right wing (currently closest to the work benches) to the “outside” spot.

Before.

After. (Although this is really a “before” shot. As in, before I add some 2x4s to protect the wing from door dings.)

Anyway, time to get started on the left wing.

Since the leading edge was already sitting on the bench, I went ahead and matchdrilled it.

Matchdrilled.

I’ve also decided that even if I don’t end up using the stall warning vane that Van’s now provides with all their kits, I should at least install the little riblet to allow future installation.

You can see that top flange needs to be fluted.

Much better.

Then, I thought I’d get out the stall warning system to at least see how it’s going to work.

An overview picture.

The detailed subassembly.

Luckily, all the hardware came in a separate bag.

The subassembly built up.

I didn’t final assemble anything (still need to deburr, prep, and prime), but this is how it will fit together.

1.5 hours today. Mostly reorganization, but some building.

Now, it’s time for football!
