    Looking for a set of Cessna wing jigs to be put to good use. Bonus for the 337/O-2 tooling as well.

    Keep an eye on barnstormers. They are pretty rare. I sold a set my dad had a while back through Facebook marketplace as well.

    Been checking there too, but thought I’d cast a bigger net.

    Curious why you need wing jigs? Factory type jigs are very hard to come by. Most wing repairs can be done with locally fabricated work aids and then wing washout, etc. checked per the applicable MM or structural manual depending on model year.

    I’m restoring an O-2A that has seen better days, and a friend borked his 185 and needs new wings or his rebuilt (don’t underinsure!) and we figure that a jig would be a lot easier to buy than build. Though I’ll build if I need to.
