Default Page 38-11, Fluting Woes ...

Guys,

When fluting C-01409-L/R the flute has to go outboard to level the part per the instructions, fluting inboard exaggerates the arc being corrected.

The outboard flute isn't going to work when attached to C-01407-L/R.

Kind of lost on this. Any suggestions?

I had to change the angle of some of the flanges slightly to get everything to lay flat. Haven't riveted it yet, though, so I am not sure how well it will all end up. Might be something to consider.

Got it ... this part takes a LOT of working ... hand pressure on my fluting tool didn't do it. I had to apply pressure with the fluting pliers, then use a rubber mallet to get enough depression. Even using the rubber mallet probably need to double up on the flutes so they aren't so deep.

Had to order replacement part, fluted the other direction twice working it so concerned this part may develop cracks later.

Lesson learned.
