Re: Working with Phenolic

Martin Skiby

These look good and would be easily installed as long as they come in the correct sizes.

Thanks Dan, Saved me some work right here. Glad to have this group.

Thanks all.

Several people are using Rulon to replace the pivot bushings. Your
mileage may vary, but you can find them on Amazon here:

The pre-drilled holes on the QAC supplied phenolic were reamed. This
them a more precise dimension that just using a drill press and twist

The problem comes with using the larger drill diameters required for the
bellcranks. Check around with your buddies, and maybe you can find the
right size reamers. You can also check Ebay.

You son't need superduper expensive ones, since you have just a couple of
holes to ream.

There are several pieces of Phenolic that are missing out of the kit
that I
just purchased. I know that I can make them from sheet, but wanted to
the group the best way to do so. Is it better to have it machined so
the fit would be the most accurate for the control tubes or can this be
adequately with a normal drill press and sharp bits? Also is there
that is currently fabricating these parts as I am also missing some of
bushings for the control tubes and hinge points.
