It just takes time mate, keep at it. How's your F-5 project coming along?

Far too slow. Between a steep learning curve, a garage project and work and family little time seems left to be productive of any kind.

Designed and printed the jettison button and rotary control knob. The lettering will be lasered with the rest later. Moving onto the switch headers for the four toggles shown. The multi-selector switch is geared to take 180 degrees movement on the knob to 120 degrees movement to the switch. The switch needs to move through 5 positions with 30 degress between them.

Completed part, minus lettering.

Some very clever simple engineering going on here.

Cheers Guys, the challenge is to design mechanisms that fit into the boxes. There's almost no space left in the air unit. With this unit it had to be shallow as the max clearance-depth is a little over 3cm.

Quick update, instead of gluing in the headers which means I can no longer remove the switch for maintenance and I'm not sure how long that would hold after a while I've opted to drill a small hole through the 3mm wide toggle switch head and insert a 1mm brass rod through the switch header. To ensure accuracy I built this jig, without it, drilling on a polished curved surface in the exact same spot would be challenging.




Flap Control Switch

WAU!

I’ve been following your progress and it seems you must not have a lot of time for a day job
Absolutely fantastic! Puts my own pit to shame though.

I have poured a boat load of hours into this, it's brought all my hobbies together so I'm having a ball. If only I didn't have to work...
