Torque tube bracing bracket

One thing that has been outstanding for a while , and I cant really rivet in until my next inspection has been signed off is the torque capping brace brackets.

You can see that I added a piece of covering paper roll to catch as much of the swarfe as possible and then, as my engineer guru noted one time, a brush on hand to get rid of the bits as soon as you have drilled the part. Not good to have these bits floating around control fittings.

These are quite awkward to drill with everything else in situ and you need to make sure its seated in a suitable position to allow the rivets to come through at the right level.


These have been cleco’d for now and will be M62 riveted once sign off is achieved. Another step nearer
