Making the elevator trim tab

Tonight I went to the airport to use the brake to make my trim tab. I got the airport and used a spare sheet of 0.025 2024T3 to make the tab. I marked and cut out the tab and then made the 1/2″ folds followed by the 3/8 diameter tip fold. It didn’t like the 3/8 fold came out so I cut out another tab sheet and tried again. This time I folded the wrong direction and the tab was backwards. So I marked and cut out a third. This time the fold on the 3/8″ diameter matched and came out good so i went home. This took 2.5 hours about 1.5 hours longer than I expected.

Time spent today 2.5 hours
Total time spent 934.5 hours
