    I “fixed” the drill press photo orientation yesterday. I never had these issues until I (we) started taking photos with an iPhone or iPad instead of a digital camera. Might have something to do with the auto-uprighting screen feature of these devices but not completely sure. When I see a crooked posted photo I just copy it into my iPad photo location then do a quick edit to rotate to proper orientation then replace the photo. Takes about five minutes. A member would have to catch it shortly after posting to do this edit as our operating software times out for edits on posts after a short time. This editing timer protects our data base from malicious damage like we sustained early on in the forums life. When I see a crooked photo I usually address it. Keep posting photos guys. Others benefit greatly from your generosity. 👍👍

    Thank you for all your work! I certainly have already benefited from TeamKitfox so much and saved myself a lot of trial-n-error related griefs, no doubt. But, most of all, I very much enjoy the community.

    I will do my best to try to get the photos righted using your tips as well.

    Roger that, Eddie. It’s no big deal though. Just wanted to make sure nothing on my end was the cause....

    I cut all the stiffners to the appropriate lengths for the HS and the elevator ribs, then sanded them all for bonding. Nothing hard here. I marked each part where they are supposed to go with a sharpie to prevent some griefs later on.

    The first day working with Hysol. I bonded several HS ribs with stiffners to cure overnight. It is almost like caulking - the smaller the beads you use the easier and cleaner it is. I also drilled a ½ inch holes on the 310 ribs and enlarged them with a Dremel tool for access to the stabilizer hinge.

    To apply Hysol, I did not use a syringe or a baggie. Instead, I cut the end of a tongue depressor at 90 degrees so that it had a flat edge and used it to dab on small amounts of Hysol.

    Default Re: Dactel's Build-HS ribs and elevator rib stiffners

    Finished Hysoling all HS and elevator ribs with stiffners.

    Today, I used syringe method to apply the Hysol. I have a box of 10cc size irrigation syringes which are cheap enough to throw away after a use. They are great for applying small amounts of Hysol to small areas.
