|Day 12||Putting together more frames and completing|
|Some of the frames are
comprised of 4 separate sections per side, the web to
sole line, the straight section to continue the web past
the sole line, the radius section, and the straight
section leading to and above the sheer line. This kept us
busy for the first 3 1/2 hours of day 12.
Welded together web 7.5 at the same time.
Gena welding 7.5
Shown: Half of frame 7 on copied through plans (plywood sheets) Completed frames in background
|Completed and plumbed
frames 8, 9, & 10. Finished half of frame 7. They are
all pretty light so lifted them by hand. Will likely find
it necessary to lift frames 5, 6 & 7 with the hoist.
( Finally we may get to use it this year! ) Next weekend
we plan on actually erecting some of the frames! Luckily
the weather is holding out.
