Loc Stovi question

Post by Rocket90 » Fri, 23 Mar 2001 16:25:19



I have a Loc Stovi that I am going to start building soon. I am going to use
the 29mm motor tube option. The instructions say to cut a .46 inch piece out of
the outboard tubes to make room for the central motor tube to fit.

My question is how do I measure the .46 inches. Do I bend the ruler around the
tube so that that arc measures .46", or does the sliver that I take off measure
.46" in a straight line. I think that I could explain my question if I could
draw you a picture.

I suposed I could try one first to see which one works, but I though that if
any of you built one of them first you could give me some guidence.

Thanks for your help

John K.

That was measured straight across.

I used dial calipers.  Take your time, measure once - cut twice (or
something like that).  It's definately too heavy to use the 24mm motor
tube.  Besides, you wouldn't be able to shove an H-128 into it if you
did use the 24mm.  Mine turned out very nice.  Good Luck with it.

I measured straight across.  Makes a great kit and refuses to die.
