Drilling pushrod ends using vee-blocks: 2008-08-27

Nikon Coolpix 8400

A CS13 short aileron pushrod set up for drilling the ends. The black Rak clamp is to prevent the rod ends migrating outwards during drilling. The rear clamp holds the vee-block in position and maintains that in between drilling operations. The foreground clamp holds the tube in the vee-block. Obviously the drilling is done beyond the end of the vee-block so as not to damage it, but the drill bit needs to be aligned with the centre of the vee. The position of this vee-block was set by first lining up another one under the drill-bit, placing a length of tube in it and sliding this vee-block up against it to align with both tube and block, then clamping it in position.
