Metal Magic: Making Parts Fit


In our 22nd episode of Metal Magic, KITPLANES editor at large Paul Dye goes into some of the tactics to make recalcitrant airframe pieces fit properly.

Paul covers a few here.

  1. Cheers, noting the shop backdrop of the lathe in Paul Dye’s metal videos. If I were to leave the T handle resting in the chuck on a lathe, my shop teacher would have failed me on the spot ! He believed that this was totaled disregard for SAFTY, and unacceptable
    in any shop environment. That was the way we were taught……..
    Thank You
