|Initial fitting of control surfaces require multiple installation and removals of the parts to fit, trim, and adjust everything. These temporary assembly pins make the task quicker and easier. Pins are 3/16” diameter with tapered points and angle bends for easy installation. The pins are threaded so the pin holder can be removed — this is necessary to prevent damage should you move the control surface too far during fitting. To remove pins just screw holder back on pin and remove pin. Packaged in sets: 6 pins / 2 holders.|
Heard about these from other builders. Currently working on fit of tail feathers. These make are amazing! SO much easier to get on and off. A few seconds, versus minutes trying to maneuver a bolt in and out multiple times.
AVERY TEMP ASSEMBLY PINS
I was using an allen wrench until I came across these. I saw another builder that was using them but he didnt say what they were called, so this tool was difficult to find. Finally found and used for the first time. You can unscrew the handle while the pin is still in place which allows full travel of the control surface while adjusting.
