        Thanks for putting that out for us, a great resource - especially with your notes. I just got started looking at it, will need to return to it.

            Wonderful documentation! I'm wondering what filler rod and dia. you are using?

            Thank you!

              hey BTAZ i have the tubing kit as well and I have just began to fit the upper frame together, On drawing 14 it shows a 1 3/4 offset between stations p and n. That causes a bend in the longeron. How did you deal with this bend? Did you prop up the longeron at station n with a 1 3/4 block? Thanks

                The top is built flat on the table.

                The 1 3/4 dimension is established when you put the top over the bottom frame and the side verticals set it.

                Basically, when the bottom "Level Datum" from C to D is on your level table, and the side uprights are installed, P to N will have 1.75" difference.

                Assuming your tubing kit is as accurate as mine was, it is basically "self jigging".
