Default WTB #6 Nutplate Jig

Just seeing if anyone has a nutplate jig they don't need anymore. Looking for the #6 kind, thanks

I have one nutplate jig. It works on #6, #8, and #10. IF you are using Mil Spec nutplates, they should all have the same leg size. Look at measurement J on the linked page.

Cleco nutplate upside down in pilot hole and then drill hole thru legs, as good as any jig and you can cleco multiple nut plates in , goes a lot faster.

I feel like I tried this and it wasn't ideal but I can't remember specifically. Hmm...

If you cleeco the nutplate to use it as a jig, then use a small of drill as possible to avoid losing center tolerance. If your trying to match holes, say for AD-4 rivets, better to drill 1/8" and use a rivet for location - it's much more concentric.

I'd approach the nut plates the same way.

Onward and upward
