Gondola Gluing II – Gluing the Spider Gondola

We stared the gluing process with the less demanding joints: the scoop and the tubes that will be under compression. As we got better we moved into the more demanding tubes.

We used a jig to fix the clocking of the inserts, we cured the tubes vertically in the jig for 24 hours and then take them out to cure to full strength, which take around 10 days.  For every batch of tubes (we glued around 8 tubes per day) we made a test tube.
