Received the Empennage kit

I got the first empennage kit box today. The other didn't arrive because it "wasn't scheduled for delivery". I guess that didn't apply to the first one, because it wasn't "scheduled for delivery" either. I unpacked this box. It had a lot of stuff in it, even though it was small.

I put all the fasteners in these little rubbermaid containers I got at Walmart. There is a lot of rivets.

HS-908 attach angles, the first parts I made. These attach angles are fabricated from a piece of 3/8" thick angle. This was a lot of work cutting it with a hacksaw. I have a small band saw stored away, I guess I'll have to get it. After cutting and filing, I deburred with the scotch brite wheel, then drilled the 9 pilot holes in each.
