chapt. 13 rudder pedal
Tonight I finished making the pieces I would need to make the rudder pedals work. I used my surface grinder to cut a slot in one piece and used the mill and the lathe to make the rest of the pieces. The pictures say it best. I still need to do some tweeking to get everything to fit and to function properly. I will have to bend my pedals in about 1/5" I need to do some machining on the aluminum bottom mounts and I will need to make new plywood braces I need to move the hinge point about 3/8" away from f-22 and the canard mounting tabs. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.
