Completed Wing Jig/Fixture
After a short trip the the hardware store for two 4' pieces of sqare aluminum tube, I set out to finish the wing jigs. If you recall, I had originally had wood cross members between the posts (for the spars to rest on), and I was thinking of switching to metal. I spoke to another builder about the choice of wood vs. metal and he said wood would be fine, but despite me best efforts things weren't perfectly true (level), so $20 later I swithced to aluminum. The 2x4 I was using had a slight twist to it and it was playing havoc with my efforts to get it all aligned. Oh well, no big deal.
