« Part 6: we have a wing Part 7 of SCMS stand w/ folding wings series Part 8: Two wings are better than one »

I have the second wing mounted, and came up with a better arrangement for the leveling screw, so now I have to modify the first wing. This is taking much longer than expected.

I have to wait for parts to make the wing extension, fence and stop blocks. I’ll undertake a saw tune up while I wait, replacing the trigger switch, the ZCI, and dialing in the alignment

Good to see that you won’t be flying in circles anymore!!!

What did you different, for the leveling adjustment?

The parts for my SCMS station have not yet arrived!
Did you send them to the correct address?

Looks as if the end is near….

On the left side, I have to screw the leveling foot almost all the way out to get the wing up all the way. This leaves only one or two threads engaged and is not very solid? Also, witht he foot all the way up, the hinged support can’t fold up untill you screw it back in, as it doesn’t clear the overhanging carcass top.

On the right wing, I added a short extension under the support rib, Sotheby’s leveling foot is mostly retracted. The extension is located so that it clears the “swooping curve cut” in the hinged support, so the wing can still drop all the way.

Nice progress Matt…...

-- Jeff - I have not failed. I've just found 10,002 ways that won't work.

Have your say...
