Cowl mount

Next up is make the mount for the cowl. A second F1 former is made and shaped to just fit inside the cowl. It is aligned with the F1 on the fuse and pilot holes drilled through both pieces for the locating pins and magnets.

The pins are the point of a toothpick. Magnets are 1/16" dia.

A note about the pins and holes.
I drill a pilot hole first. The toothpick point is then used as a drill bit to size the hole. This results in a tapered hole that is then hardened with a drop of thin ca.

The center of the cowl mount ring will be cut out and glued into the cowl with canopy glue.

Happy Thanksgiving!
