Section: 23
Hours: 5

I continued work on the aileron actuator. Here is the jig I used for setting the length and angles before drilling the bolt holes in the center tube. I marked the dimensions on my table and clamped a couple squared off blocks at either end of the width. It was easy to insert the parts and expand them to the proper width. I then used another wood block cut on my table saw to be 1 1/32 inch wide to set the angle per the drawing in the manual. Make sure you build the second one as a mirror image of the first.
I deburred, sanded, cleaned and primed the components with Rust-oleum clean metal primer.
