Other Side...

Lemme Splain...
This has a TIGHT squeeze around the Cyl and Dynafocal mount.
My solution...
Two piece...
The outer baffle is Riveted to the Main Cross piece.
The inner baffle also plugs air on the main cross over piece...

The inner baffle piece...It uses existing threads to help lock in place...
It's cornered by the Cross over piece and the Cyl...
But it could "Tilt" and loose the good air seal.
One rivet... Not holding anything... CLICKS behind the baffle plate/on the cross over piece as it's put in place during assembly.

.
My plan is to keep it very light and simple..

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

Hmmm,
Worked my way around to the last section before starting on the cover.
.
Here's the start of the paper mock-up...

Gotta Fly...

PS The Magnets are holding the paper mock-up in place because it's all on a steel table top.
The magnets work THROUGH the aluminum...

I made a drill guide from hard banding material.

Here's a view of the lower Plenum parts.

I need to make the cover now.

Hey Guys,
The weight of these lower Plenum pieces comes to 2 lbs 4 ounces
It's strong and comes apart easy.

Chad , my Stepson passed away in his sleep , Four days after two surgeries...
I've went out to the shop everyday for the past month...Start a fire...Warm it up... But unable to do anything other than some cleaning.
His Muscles have been weakening more this last year.
I would bring him parts that I made...like a show & Tell.
I was about to bring in the Baffling pieces and put it together on his bed.
He liked the WWII Aircraft...

He was dealt a Shit Life... I am happy he's finally FREE.
But still missing him.

Soon... I will be back to work on Mystical Madness.
