Is it important to pay attention to orientating the blade of the cleco?
Will the orientation possibly help keep airfoils from twisting?
Thanks James

I am not aware of any difference in Cleco orientation making a difference during my build experience. I did however make an effort not to just start at one end of a piece and just rivet straight down the line. It was suggested to me, and appeared to work, that one should rivet a little in one spot then move down the line to another then back up the line a little and so forth. The thought being that as you rivet you do don't push the metal progressively in one direction, thus setting tension and possible twist in the work piece.

Also the cleco's will stop the bleeding when you drill into your finger.  Simply remove drill bit and insert cleco.  Yes you WILL drill into your finger!!  Happy building.
