Trimming joggle tabs

Today Kody was over to help do some work on the plane. We marked, cut, and sanded all 10 of the joggle tabs to the correct size and angle. If you're asking why aren't the ends square, it's because the longerons are not parallel to the centerline of the plane in this region, so the tabs end up being a parallelogram rather than a rectangle. After dropping Kody off back home, I deburred the edges of all of these. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get at least five of them (one side's worth) drilled to the platform.
