Re: Working with Phenolic

Martin Skiby

My thought would be to oversize the hole in the phenolic and flox the rulon into place. Those who have installed these please ring in.

I needed to replace a broken CS7? for the aileron. I bought a sheet of 1/4"
phenolic from A/S, then remembered someone mentioned Step drills. I saw
them in Harbor Freight and bought a set. They are really neat. Perfectly
round holes! I did find the the 3/4" step was a little over-sized, so I
started over with the next smaller step and the took a few thousands off
with some sandpaper.

I would like to consider using rulon also, but I'm not sure how they would
"fit" into the phenolic structure.
