I'm home again now and have a few days to recover before going back to work. My vision was affected somewhat but it is rapidly getting better, so I now find myself with a few days to tinker with the plane stuff while my brain fixes itself.
I was excited back before all this hospital stuff happened because I just got yet another tool. This is a baby router or laminate trimmer. I also got a flush cut trimming bit. As I cover fuselage frames and ribs with aircraft plywood, this doodad will allow me to trim the plywood to the exact shape of whatever it is attached to. It is a wonderful tool that with save me incredible amounts of time and effort and possible screwups. Later on, I may turn it in to a plywood scarfing jig.
So, the first thing I did when I could stand again was trim the ribs and frames I covered way back when. Here they are in their current state. It's a beautiful thing and the tool is extremely easy to use.
