Dear Mark, That's a fabulous photo series. Thanks for that! Would you bevel the hinge-side edges of the stab and elevator?

Each photo has been marked up with a short note as to what is being done. #8 has been marked up to show the difference between a "T" spring and a "Z" spring. I use guitar string but salvaged spring wire from a 3.5" floppy disk is a good size wire to use as well. Just straighten it out and bend as needed. > > > > The pictures did not post in order but should be viewed form #1 to #8 to see the steps. Hope this helps you guys out a bit.
