Rudder in jig for sanding

TE support rebate

Rudder in jig for sanding: 2004 05 22.

Canon AV-1, Fujichrome Velvia 100F.

The rudder set port-side-up in the jig ready for sanding. The batten at the root end is invisible from this angle - its size and position were chosen to keep it below the upper surface and thus clear of the sanding block. The batten restraining the LE is slim so that it only contacts the hinge flange and won't foul the curved LE which protrudes forward of the hinge flange. Because the rudder is tapered, and its TE is parallel to the table on the rebated TE batten, a wedge is needed (bottom, left of centre) to support the LE at the tip.
