Ply Forming

Posted on Updated on

In the top wing of the Delta variant there is no kit parts, so everything is being made from scratch. Having done the metal I have worked out how to get more efficient over time. Now the learning process begins for the ply components. The CAD plans are in full scale so I traced the outlines and transferred to ply then rough cut with jigsaw. The pieces that are complete (not all are) on the right are hand sanded for finish. The pieces being worked on here are the ply sheet parts which are the nose and trailing ribs. On the bench are also some rough cut ply doublers.

I now know that a router/trimmer is going to be necessary. The ply doubles need a bevelled edge and to get the parts absolutely matched a trimmer at least would be helpful
