    Default Wing Leading Edge Clamps

    I am inquiring to see if anyone has a set of leading edge clamps that we can borrow for our FX3 wing build. I understand that there may be a set among the group that can be borrowed temporarily. Any help or advice on building the clamps is appreciated.

    Hey Mark. Yeah we have a thread going on this subject http://forum.cubcrafters.com/showthr...ge-Skin-Clamps. Seems that cubcrafters made 22 set of these clamps and can only locate about 3 right now. Don't know what the deal is but it's best to build both wings and then when ready to put skins on, get the clamps and do them both. Only takes a couple hours each. I think people get these when they start the kit and don't even need them for 6 months.

    We will wait until the second wing is built and then look for a set of clamps, so
    we will need a set out here on the West Coast in 4-6 weeks.

    4 weeks into build and the first wing is nearing completion.
    Yippee!

    should work out good as there is another group out there building 1 as well. They can pass it on to you or vice versa.

    I ended up building 6 clamps. I'll see how they work on my first wing in a week or two. Once completed I'll make them available to anyone who needs them.

    So with iffy flying weather, we have spent a lot of time on the project.
    Trailing edge ribs going on the RH wing now.

    We will need leading edge clamps in about a week.


    Anyone out there with a set they aren't using, I will pay shipping to get them here!!
    Thanks!
