Default Wing Cradle / table

This wing cradle rotates at the bolt to turn into a wing table.

Rotate the wing to the horizontal position then roll the cradle to install
the wing

Works fine, a one man operation.

The second cradle is the same and designed to store within the spacing of
the first cradle.

It take up the same footprint as a cradle that holds two wings.

Is there adjustment for height and adjustment for dihedral angle so spar pins line up with fuselage center section?

Doesn't need to.
Once a wing is fully inserted into an RV-12, the wing is statically held in the proper position for inserting the pins (as long as the wing was trimmed for proper clearance on the root seals, etc.).

Clever idea Joe.

Default Wing Cradle / table

Jim

The table is parallel to the ground.
You roll the table in until the spar is in about 60% to 90% ( depending on the adjacent terrain ) then pick up the wing by the wing tip handle and push it in until the end of the spar is under the restraining blocks, as Scott has explained .

The table is a little lower than I think is should be by design so I can use larger Wheels.

Default Wow!

I'm impressed!!!

------------------------
Here is an idea: Lets establish a "Nobel Prize" for innovation in RV construction. Donate a few bucks into the pool, vote, and send the winner a gift card to buy something useful from AircraftSpruce.

This year my vote goes to Joe!
