Spinner – First Cut

Started the cut and tailor the spinner to seat on the top of the propeller boss/flange. This involved shaping a paper template around the propeller and then using that as a guide to mark exact opposite points on the TLAC supplied spinner to cut undersized slots of opposite slants.

These are being slowly opened up to make sure that I don’t end up with a large gap around the prop edge.

Getting there – added protection tape around the prop as I didn’t want the sharp edge cutting the varnish. Also had to shorten the spigot slightly to get the spinner edge to sit in the channel backplate.
