Default VS-1015

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me out here, I have accidentally over done the countersinking on the VS-1015. Wondering if anyone is close enough to their kit to measure the thickness because I forgot before I left my shop and now I won't be back for a week. If I have the aluminum I will just make a new one.

Otherwise I have to order which has some lead time with shipping to me.

Thanks!

Thanks! As I suspected I donít have that size. However I managed to find a friend who will be in LA this week so Iíve had it shipped to his hotel.

First lesson on paying closer attention!

Yeah I looked in the trim pack and there is nothing that thick.

FWIW I usually test the countersink on a piece of scrap bar before taking it to the part. Especially if Iíve changed from flush to recessed and vice versa or I donít know where I left it.

Iíve also thought about doing some sort of flag system but I havenít come up with something that works.

I did run into a problem with my countersink cage. The internal spring was too long and it would occasionally pop and sink anywhere from 0.002Ē-0.020Ē deeper. It actually ruined the vs main spar! I clipped that spring and it has worked perfectly since.

Yes I got a bit ahead of myself. I guess I should double check my spar too! from memory it didn't touch the spar caps so I think my main spar is ok.

From now on I will have a good piece of scrap ready to test
