Default Wanted RV7 wing jig in Colorado Springs

Does anyone have a steel floor mounted wing jig they want to get rid of? I am in Colorado Springs?

Curious, isn't the wing self-jigging; pre-punched skins and sub-structure.

Default Wing jig

If you follow the recommendations by Vans.......then yes! The jig insures that you donít build any twist in the wing. Even though the kit is pre-punched, there is plenty of room for error.

I second this. Absolutely build a wing jig. level it in, square it in, and plumb-bob it. No question about it.

I just ran posts from floor up to the trusses and clamped the spars. I'm guessing your in a finished garage and need the steel ones to the floor.

Default Rolling stand

Erik,

When you get the wings finished, I’ll have a rolling wing stand if you want it.

I just want them to be in a new home. I can check on shipping but I expect it not to be cheap. They are heavy.
