Making a Polycarbonate Fin Mount   08-29-04

After my Raptor 50v2 experienced traumatic earth deceleration, the fin/boom support mount exploded. Instead of aluminum I tried it in polycarbonate. Awesome!
Aug. 29, 04


Here is the stock, left over after making my router table mount. 9.75mm of pure polycarbonate, Sweet :)


The 2 flute endmill made butter of this stuff. Cutting this was literally a piece of cake.
Here you can see the lower piece being cut. Sorry for the lousy pics.
The pieces came out to 7.1 grams and fit very well.


I drilled and tapped for 3 mm socket screws. Almost done.  
Mounted with boom supports and fin.
