I used clamps only allowing 24 hour drying time.

Subject: Help with securing rib gussets

Champions of the aether;

I am once again returning to building some ribs after a long absence and ho
nestly I don't have that many to go (relatively speaking). Looking at the p
lans I see the notation "nailed and glued on both sides of wing rib 1/2" 20
ga nails".

Is anyone using brass plated "Escutcheon Pins"? Stainless nails? Help!

Any an all input is appreciated.

If you wish to reach me off list my email is:

donaldphilbin(at)hotmail.com

Thank you!

D.K. Philbin

I used 1/4=9D brass aircraft nails from Aircraft Spruce. They were ch
eap
enough and are resistant to corrosion. A bit tricky to handle due to their
size but I found that a pair of spring action tweezers helped with that.

Of course, you could always make do with no nails at all - the only thing
they really do is hold the gussets in place while your glue dries. Using
the nails means you don=99t have to leave the ribs clamped in place w
hile
waiting for the glue to tack. I considered doing without, but I calculated
that the nails used in all of my ribs would add less than 1/4 lb to the
total weight of my Pietenpol. A good trade off in my mind, all things
considered.

Hope this helps,
Brian Ahrens

I used no nails at all. I used common pins nailing them lightly and removed
them after epoxy sets.
