Metalworking 101 with rudder workshop is targeted to the beginning student of pop-riveted metal kit plane construction. The ideal audience for this video is the person who is contemplating the undertaking of a metal kit plane project (for example: Zenith, Sonex, Hummel) and wants to witness the actual skills and procedures necessary for successfully achieving this end. This very affordable DVD will take you thru the actual construction of a Zenith rudder, from start to finish. While it can be used to supplement the construction guide supplied by the manufacturer with this rudder (a CH701 or CH601), it is actually intended to demonstrate to the beginning builder just what tasks and skills are required for any similar brand of metal kit plane construction. In addition to the rudder building demonstration, general metal building procedures are explained and demonstrated.
