2016.11.01 - Laminating Mistake

A very short entry today since one of the beams needed remedial attention. The aft most beam with the un-epoxied section in the middle had too much spring back when released from the template due to the unglued section. So I mixed up some epoxy, put a whole load in the centre section between the laminates and put it back on the template until the epoxy has cured.

This is the glued up section with a gap between the beam and the former.

And here is the centre section with a large gap.

Oh well, it is easily remedied, but annoying all the same. I've learnt something new about laminating, though!
