Builder Tip #14 from HomebuiltHELP 
Creating an Opening in a Metal Skin
Sometimes, even after construction has been completed, we need to make an opening in our metal aircraft skin. This can be for an unplanned inspection panel, a storage locker, even a landing light may need a cutout in the wing.

There are several techniques available that can be used to make the metal cut out: aviation snips, rotary disk, nibbling tools etc. An important consideration in selecting the proper tool is that the cut lines for these openings need to be straight and accurate!

Our Tip of the Week will demonstrate a technique that may be new to you. It does not use a power tool, but rather a special knife. Straight and accurate cut lines are the result - you watch and judge for yourself.  Sooner or later you may need to create an access opening in your metal aircraft!
