Wing Stand
Simple Portable Wing Stand
[ Return to Home Page ] [ Created 11/11/2009 ]

I did not follow the plans regarding the order in which the wing skins were installed.
First - Nose skin to spar
Second - Upper skin
Last - bottom skin

The nose skins and upper skins were installed on a flat and level table.
The bottom skin with the Z-bend was installed using a wing stand for ease of access.

The wing stand was made entirely out of 1x4 inch lumber.
Kreg self-tapping screws were used.

End view

Stand is place on dolly for ease of movement ... sling is visible
... Warning don't bang Clecos against something!
In this view, the slings have not been adjusted to lift the wing.

Place verticals to avoid conflict with Clecos.
Sling adjustment completed.
(Surplus vertical blind pieces were used for slings.)
