Building will be slow for the next several weeks...

Superbowl Sunday was productive and most of the rear wing channel for the left wing was finished. The remaining center piece was done on Monday.

Working on the rear channels alone is a challenge, an assistant is a necessity.

After much discussion on the Zenith list, I bought and tried a Drill Doctor XP2. What a piece of crap. I tried two #30 bits that we past their life and it made . A #40 was also tried and destroyed. If I hadn't received a refund from Home Depot you can bet that angry mails would be sent, but I really don't have the time. All three bits were made blunt, not matter what I attempted.
