Rudder assembly part #2

After fighting to set blind rivets this weekend, I decided to invest in one of these. This tool is great! It makes quick work of instantly setting consistent pop-rivets. The best part is you can focus on aligning the rivet rather than actuating the manual tool which is particularly helpful when setting in confined areas.

After playing with my new toy, I finished riveting the top counterweight and experimented with double-flush back riveting. I think I’ll wait to do the trailing edge tomorrow when I’m rested.
