Wing Rib Fluting — Part 2

I found an hour or so to finish up the main wing rib fluting.  Like the last session, I used the table top method on our granite countertop and knocked out the remaining 14-something main wing ribs.  They stack much nicer now that they are all formed straight and with proper flanges.

I was going to start working on the leading edge ribs, but decided to hold off on those guys, because I think I will modify my flange straightener tool to work with these curved edges so I can more easily get the flanges to 90 degrees.  Then I can flute them all.  No photos from tonights work, as it is pretty much the same as the last session.

    Lynn, I saw your reply to my post about my ACK-04 ELT going off on it’s own. I thought I had solved the issue, but it happened to me again today. Could you drop me an email and let me know if you resolved your issue in your 172?
