Drawing 12A for wing stand(s)
Drawing 12A is correct for a "Wing Stand" to build the wings in.
According to the drawing, you need TWO (2) 4 X 4 Vertical posts that is exactly 114" between them. Yes the 114 inches works perfect. My RV-8 left wing is almost complete and ready to come out.
There will be "arms" built out on one side of both 4 X 4s to support the wings. I used galvanized angle with holes in it that I got from Home Depot or Lowe's along with a few bolts / nuts / washers / lock washer.
There is enough info on the Preview / CD / USB plans to construct the holding fixture.

Reason: one side of both 4 X 4's
