Scary!! Strangely enough, I have been fluting my wing ribs and this is the EXACT same method that occurred to me.

Couple of things to note. Firstly (on the -10 at least) the bottom profile is less curved than the top so needs less fluting - took me a couple of ribs to work that one out. Secondly, after fluting the flanges bend out again slightly and need to be hand-seamed back to square again.

Must be a million different ways to do these things. Anyway, 20 down, 10 to go..........
