After a couple weeks of travel, I finally primed the elevator parts and got to work.
After reading about how to use 2x8s or 2x10s to create a bending break for the rudder and elevators, I decided to incorporate it into my work bench. When not in use it is the back splash and when I need, it is a very stable, convenient tool.
Since my squeezer yoke is not deep enough to get around the rib flanges, I had to get creative with the back riveting plate and tungsten bar..
And after about 5 hours and a little help, I am ready to close up the right elevator then move on to the challenge of the left side.
