Aluminum bits

This is a screen shot of Mastercam which I use to program the G-code for the router. It is all the 0.125 pieces for the canard.

The sheet of aluminum is put down on the table. The router has a vacuum table that sucks it all down I only use the masking tape around the perimeter to make a better seal to the sheet of aluminum.

This is a pic of the pieces still tabbed into the sheet. The tabs keep the small pieces from flying off the table while being cut.

The holes are countersunk for riveting on the anchor nuts.

Here is a shot of all the parts deburred, scuffed and cleaned. I still have to acid etch and alodine the parts but I will wait until I’m closer to installing them. That way I know they are clean for bonding.
