    Removing Wood Wing Skin From Wood Rib

    TiPi, Thanks for your thoughts, they're very close to what I've been considering starting with the multi-tool (oscillating tool). To produce the scarfing (beveled) surface on the 1/16" skin, I'm planning on using a belt sander with a shim (of sorts) affixed to one side of the belt sander to...

    Removing Wood Wing Skin From Wood Rib

    First, thanks for the replies - they're genuinely appreciated. The damage is most of the length of one rib. The skin is mostly cracked from the spar to the trailing edge on both sides of one rib (the second rib closest to the fuselage). The skin is also cracked ahead of the spar along that...

    What is it???

    As originally designed, the 1900 had a rather limited C.G. range. The "surfboard" (as we called it) allowed for a much greater range. From time to time, a tug or bag cart would hit the surfboard; it we had it removed, the plane could be ferried back to our maintenance base for repair, but at a...

    What is it???

    The 1900s were flying long before the KingAir 350. I was delivering new 1900s when the 350 was just a proposal (then) known as the 300S.
