I made a plywood jig to hold the landing gear parts for silver soldering.

Here is the gear after soldering. The only thing left to do is add the 1/4" axles that will be joined to the hinge in the center of the spreaders.

Les,

I drilled holes in one side of the tubes that slides over the horizontal members and placed the pins to hold the axle first before sliding in the last member, so the pins couldn't go anywhere

When everything is in place the "H" is fixed with silver solder.

But you cheated, and hid the holes afterward:-))))))))))))))))))))))
