    Running out of 3/8" spruce so harvesting some from the crooked wing spar that RCaiir replaced for free.

    Shop's a mess from summer house projects, made a huge deposit into my neglected TD Ameritrade the day before the stock market took a dump and went on a buying frenzy. In other words no Cub work for months. I finally did something, built the last 3 hinge pieces for the elevator tonight. Yay for me!

    Not a lot, just some more hinge work.

    You say not a lot, but I would not have the talent to do that.

    Gluing hinges tonight, I have learned to let the JB Weld solidify somewhat then squeeze the brass tube tight to the dowel.

    Using the little mini mill I acquired a couple of months ago. A 3/8" end mill is a WHOLE LOT EASIER than a 3/8 round wood rasp!
