4.3 hrs
Pulled and deburred most of the rear spar parts.
Still need to deburr the rear spars themselves.
It takes me a long time to deburr these parts. I start with a rough file to knock off the die stamp marks, then go back over with a fine file to smooth out the deep cuts and bevel the edges. Next I use medium sandpaper, followed by fine. Last, a final polishing with the scotchbrite wheel. That's five passes over every edge. It hurts hands and back, and it's boring as hell.
