Shame,
but still better than work.

I've been drilling and de-burring what I hope is my last batch of corner fixings (See build thread)

Initial attempts were poor to rubbish (1/2hr) :(
Second attempt, much improvement especially on the thicker section spars.(Pictures and explanation in the build thread) :|
Yesterday even better. So much so that the welds are strong enough to start in earnest :) Well that was the plan.

I have suffered what I consider "a Charlie Chaplin incident".

I have been suffering for the last week or two with sciatica :evil: . This back type pain caused me to walk with a bit of a limp. In limping down my garden steps I slipped and twisted my ankle causing mild swelling. Then, to cap it off, with back pain and a swollen ankle, limping with the dog in the country park, I slipped and fell against a tree( to save myself) only to sprain my wrist :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So, although I believe I will be able to start welding the frame work, it will have to wait until I stop feeling sorry for myself.
