I would tell you how I built mine, but I am afraid that David Gall will chime in with some comic relief (every comedian needs a straight man like me). Suffice it to say, you probably don’t want to do the elevator trim mechanism my way….that said, I am very happy with the results. 😉

Subject: [Q-List] Elevator trim wheel


How have you attached the elevator trim wheel spring to CSA8?

I'm thinking of drilling 2 holes in CSA8 and either just feeding the spring tang through them or installing a shackle for each spring

Plans call for a thimble for each and then tied with the rope but that seems like a lot of pieces and finicky work 


Any thoughts?
