Well now that the flaps are done I decided to do the aileron and elevator push rods. First I had to take a couple of weeks off for this bundle of joy. Say hello to my new aviator named Avden with his custom RV hat.

After getting the push tubes cut to length I needed to sand down both ends of the large elevator push tube as it was a tight fit. Chucking it into a drill was the easiest way with a sacrificial bolt.

Next it was off to the races with the drill press. I started with a #41 and then a 1/8" bit.

The dining room table has been taken over again for a little deburring. Hopefully tomorrow I will get to prime the inside of the tubes and maybe outside if I find the time.

Good to be working on the plane again after about a two week break.
