Rib to Spar Brackets Manufacture

John Badger and Martin Walters have been working on these fittings that will eventually hold engine and undercarriage to the wing. They are working off the original drawings but having to rediscover many of the manufacturing processes using their experience and skills. One issue seems to be that modern metal is less compliant than the original material and getting the exact angles needs a combination of careful thought and brute force!
