Elevators levelled and riveted

Tail not levelHaving removed the elevators to allow the tail to be rigged it is an opportunity to place them on a flat surcae and drill the centre connecting horns through once the LEFT and RIGHT have been levelled with each other AND the elevator horn has been set to the required 60 degree rake forward.

This would have been pretty hard to do whilst they were fitted to the aircraft due to incidence on tailplane and all bits generally getting in the way .. so much easier laid flat on the floor with a large spirit level
