John Sanazario aka gadget guy came by with his home made longeron jig,
great idea John you should patent this sucker, anyhow it's hard
to see in the pic but there is 2 pieces of plywood sandwiched between some
alum 1/4" thick. You can contact John for more info on the gadget at rivetbangers.com.
The spacer is equally as thick as 2 longeron L brackets. Lean on this
contraption as required to get the bend using the template on the plans as
well as the canopy deck. Tweak here and there and it comes out quite nicely.
This pic is before the bend
Final drilled the longerons to the canopy deck with the 1/32" overhang
for the skins.
