I did get a chance to be creative today. Its time to start riveting my tail cone together and I didn't have any rivet helpers handy. My normal victims are either at school, at work, or doing homework! Sheesh, you think they would have better priorities. So since I didn't have any help I decided to do the bottom to side rivets using my back rivet tool and a custom made block with a 9 degree wedge. See the pics below.
I am traveling again this week so not much is going to get done for a day or two unless I can talk Amy into doing it....hmmm, nope no work will get done.
