Hinges and plastic control horns.
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Making the slots for hinges would give me cold sweats and nightmares.
Now, with the advent of CA hinges and Great Planes Slot Machine my life has become easier.
How do you drill the holes for those plastic control horns that have two holes and a holding plate with two holes already predrilled?
I end up coming always at different distances between holes than the top plate. Then, the holes in the holding plate don't align. This is when things are not so bad. This is usually with flat control surfaces. And I use a hand (finger) drill, not a motorized one.
But in surfaces that are not parallel in both sides... my cold sweats and lack of sleep come back. Very difficult to calculate the angle of drilling to come out at the same place in the other side, let alone having the holes be aligned.
How do you do it guys? Care to share techniques?
Once my hands and knees stop shaking I take the planes out of the car.
