I deburred the lightening holes in the turtle deck ribs. This time I took extra care so that I would not have to redo this after the forming process.
I cut the lightening holes in the turtle deck ribs using a fly cutter. I tries some WD-40 as a cutting fluid which worked well except for being a bit messy.
I cut out the blanks for the turtle deck ribs from 0.025 aluminum
Today I made the turtle deck forming blocks. These were made in the same fashion as the rib forming blocks. The only difference was that I made both a left and right forming block to make the left and right hand turtle deck ribs.
