Hi, I have found five dimensional errors; item 1 Base, bottom hole centre should read 0.683" below the top five hole centres, item 5 Anchor Posts, from bottom of the shoulder to centre of the radii should read 0.313", item 6 Levers, lever for odd 1/32" sizes, middle hole of the three should read 0.938" from common data point, item 7 Formers, top left hand 1/4" former diameter should read 1.5", bottom left had 3/32" former, notched dimension should read 0.125".

These are all from those published in MEW 64 Feb-March 2000.

Regards Nick.

I'm just modelling in SolidWorks from my Dad's copy of the magazine and realised there must be an error in the base. I've probably got the original issue in the loft but many thanks for publishing the corrections here and saving me rummaging through those old copies.

Regards

Andy

Hopefully that's of use. I'll upload any others that have incorrect dimensions later.

Regards

That's great Andy,

I'll link to this thread when I print the corrections as your drawings will be a big help.

I have scanned those from the original magazine, which needed tidying up a bit as even the type there wasn't the best, I have put them in this album Nick's No2

Regards Nick.

Might you be persuaded to host PDF versions of Andy’s excellent drawings ?

... the need for him to post jpg versions seems a little counter-productive.

I'm surely not the only one who totally agrees with MichealG. Allowing PDFs in albums is a much needed facility.

This article is starting to feed off itself methinks !

  • I bought the original
  • I bought the ‘re-work’
  • I will be buying the corrections

Hopefully there will be also room for some new content in MEW 298

Which reminds me that I said I'd let Neil have something to go into the mag FOC so he can spend his limited budget on something interesting.

PDF files are less secure than JPG files. They can contain Java script for example. People who want anything other than JPG files would probably need to PM the originator, keep the forum as safe as possible.
