The second pip-pin recess curing on the mandrel, with one I made earlier in front of it. The surrounding stuff is just a piece of scrap aluminium sheet arranged to keep the mandrel upright during cure, and thus maintain a flat bottom on the well.

This is one of the pieces of paxolin tube I used to line the drain hole on the underside of the tailplane, standing adjacent to the hole it will line.

For the pip-pin wells and drain holes, and drilling the torque tube, I made and used the surprising number of tools and jigs collected here. Also included at left are the offcuts from the wells on the upper surfaces, and at right those from the drain liners on the lower surface.
