Everyone who has 1/4 od fuel line already has bushing material. Just cut off a 1 inch piece and use whatever size drill bit fits inside for the pilot.

Or visit the local hobby store and buy one of each size 12" brass tubing. Cut off a section of each and slip inside each other. Use the combo that fits the job. The smallest typically holds a #41 bit perfectly.

I followed the instruction manual on how to make this bushing and it was easy and came out perfect. I guess I'm not sure what the problem is...no drill press or file?

Also my instructions don't mention a number 17 bit ID for this bushing. That would be way too big. This bushing is used to center the #30 bit in Step 2.

Step 1: Locate the steel E-Drill Bushing provided in the kit and shown in Figure 1 below. The drill bushing will be used
to protect the hinge bearing from the drill bit when match-drilling the elevator horns to the inboard elevator hinge point. It
may be necessary to reduce the diameter of the tube to get it to fit inside the bearing. Mount the tube in a drill press then
hold a file to it until the diameter measures 1/4 [6.4 mm].


This is about page 11-3 correct?

STOP THE PRESSES!!

Hi All-
Some really great suggestions here, but the problem was solved in a really funny way. In fact, A-Ron actually found the problem hours before I did:
I called our chapter tech counselor because A) he's smart and B) he's building an RV-10 like me, but I'm a few years ahead on build. The conversation went like this (abbreviated for effect):
Me: "Ken, check page 11-3. How would you do this with this bushing thing? A #17 is too big, the bushing only takes a #30."
Him: "Match drill #30 thru the bushing."
Me: "No Ken, it says match drill #17."
Him: "What version of the plans do you have?"
Me: "Version Zero, why?" **ZOT!!!**

Version 0 of the RV-10 has a typo and calls for #17 drill on 11-3 Step 2. As A-Ron pointed out, it's really a #30, as corrected in Version 1.

Thanks All, I shall keep these things in mind and ponder them as needed...
Build On,
-Scott
