I was commissioned to build some replacement points boxes for a Ford Model A. So first up, build a box joint jig. I’d seen many of them, and a few were more complicated than I had time to figure out, so I opted for a simple one that allows for some adjustment to keep things “just right”.
The boxes are made from pine, and are 5” tall, by 3 1/8” wide and 2 1/4” deep. Inside these boxes there will be a coil, and outside will be the points. One box per cylinder.
We made up two prototypes and these 10 are the result, going out this week to get installed in time for the Spring driving season.
This just goes to show, you NEVER know what your next project might be.
