Nose Gear Strut

This is the bottom of the nose gear strut. It is supposed to be threaded so that it will accept a nut which will hold the nose gear on. Since the tubing is kind of thin, it was suggested that I make a "plug" out of thicker material, thread it, and then weld it into the bottom of the strut.

Here, it has been threaded and fitted, but not yet welded.

Total Time: 4.5 hrs.
