After lots of life getting in the way.. just started rig jig this weekend. Getting all the material on order, and jigs should be done by the time the 1/4 x 1/4 arrive.

Stay tuned...

If you have a Facebook page post pictures of your progress. It is interesting when Facebook reminds me about something I posted years ago. It is nice to be reminded of your progress. I just recently saw my first rib from 5 years ago and I can walk out into the garage and see what almost looks like an airplane.

Hi Jim,
Sounds great! Life and the restoration of my flying plane has certainly put a damper on my Hatz project. I don't even want to know when I started on it! Now all I have to do is finish building an engine for my Cygnet and I am all Hatz.
