LOC question pt.2

Post by Team Lo' Buc » Thu, 02 Apr 1998 04:00:00



Okay gang, thanks for all the help with my LOC question. I did it a few days
ago but, unfortunately I did read the advice very well and I ended up putting
to much epoxy on and it moved toward the end of the BT before it setup. Now
the NC won't seat properly. My question is, How do I correct this problem?
Cand I sand the epoxy (with the cord) down to the BT? Is there another way of
removing the epoxy? Any advice on correcting this would be great. Thanks.

Mark

Sanding the epoxies is going to be a chore. You could cut the worst of
it out or perhaps use a dremel tool with a rotary file / burr, and
sacrifice the cord. Then finally finish sand it to the BT,  and re
install the mount. Unfortunately nothing short of tedius hand work
will remove the epoxie, unless you want to use some pretty powerfull
chemicals, which I doubt you would. A good sharp hobby knife will also
work, if you just take small bites.

Jimbo's idea is great. Just cut the offending part of the nose cone to clear the glob. No
one but you will know why you did that. It should not affect the rocket at all.

What if its a vanishing perspective? Then perspective is nothing, right? ;)

 Cut the offending part of the nose cone, and put index marks on the cone and BT
so they line up properly each time.
