Vertical stabilizer ready for priming/riveting

Match-drilled all the remaining vertical stabilizer holes, then deburred all of them (that's a lot of deburring) and countersunk the rear spar flange skin holes.

With this, the next step step is priming the parts before dimpling and riveting them. I'll make a separate post about primer (wars), but in summary I don't have any primer to do it right now, so the vertical stabilizer construction is halted until I do.

Timelapse as usual:


On the workshop, we added locking casters to the second workbench and attached the dimpler and rivet squeezer to it:



Total vertical stabilizer time: 25.7h
Total workshop time: ~24.0h
