Simes' ANH E11 Build (Doopy Doos + Tino kit)

Recommended Posts

Dammit!  That was a good spot.  You know - I know which way around that piece should be.  I've studied the ref a gazillion times.  I swore it was the correct way round when I read your post on my phone...
 
But it wasn't!
 
For some insane reason, I had indeed glued it totally the wrong way around.
 
 
Pleased to say I did a great job of fixing it in, making it completely robust.
 
Which meant, that to get it out it snapped into multiple pieces and I had to drill the rest away to get the fixing bolt out.

Time to source a new one/scratchbuild a new one from aluminium.
 
Thanks...I think...:huh:
 
Ah ... the lengths we go for a few mm poking the wrong way ... I've certainly been there.

There's a 'that's what she said' reply in there... ;)

 

I love my 3D printer

I have some more aluminium on order, so plan is to use the 3D print as a template/guide for making a metal one.

Good to know though, that if I have an emergency troop (which I won't) I can be up-and-running again in the time it takes for glue and paint to dry!

Oh, sorry to hear the handle broke - and at the same time glad to see you found a solution that fast. :duim:

So, I used the 3D print as a guide and fashioned myself an all-aluminium one - this'll never break, and once I've painted it and secured it with epoxy, it'll never come out...

 

I'll just make sure I put it in the right way around this time!

Thanks.  All fixed now, pointing in the correct direction, and even less likely to snap off!
