Tooling Up

Tools have started to arrive! I ordered the RV-10 kit from Cleaveland Aircraft Tool with the Nova drill, DRDT2 dimpling tool, and the pneumatic squeezer. The main box of tools arrived today, a bit worse for wear, but well packed with no damage to the contents.

Cleaveland Tool added extra notes, instruction sheets, tips/tricks for using the tools, and links to online content. One of the reasons I went with Cleaveland was because of the instructional content they provide on their Youtube channel and that attention to detail seems to carry through to the tools that they ship.

I’m planning on building a mobile tool cart to house most of the tools in an attempt to minimize wandering around looking for “that tool”. Inspiration here:

Now to build some work tables while I wait for the empennage kit to arrive..
