The Spreader

Bill is making a fixture to shape the spreaders. The spreaders are swept upward at 4.25 degrees on each side. However, we didn’t pick up on that when looking at the spreader diagram. There’s no statement anywhere of this fact, though the insert drawing of the spreader on the mast drawing does show the angle at the mast joint piece as well as on the truss drawing. Our approach will be to build the spreader up with laminates so it will hold the bend at the mast. Spreaders on each side are straight pieces. (You can see the shape of the spreader in an earlier blog.)
