Well, I found a source for the pins, and it's local to me, of all places--Ace Hardware! 0.047" (1.2mm) dia. by 19/32" (15mm) long. When I insert them into the holes I drilled, they barely protrude beyond the diameter of the push rod, and will easily clear the holes in the wing root rib. 32 cents each.


So which pins did you end up using? The "bobbie" pins or other? Enquiring minds want to know

Maybe a keyword to search the Ace Hardware website?

For those of us lucky enough to have to put those pins in, the best tool is a really bright flashlight. It’s relatively easy if you can put a bright light right on the connection. It’s next to impossible to do it blind.

I've done an extensive search on the Ace Hardware website, and I don't see them listed online. I really wish we could post photos here. I've tried uploading the photo to PhotoBucket, but that seems to be giving me hassles as well. Any other ideas of posting photos of this?

Your Facebook page appears to be Public. Maybe another attempt to post a picture on your timeline?

And another good tool is a hemostat

It's long and thin, and locks on the part.

Thank you, John. It is what I suspected, but good to see confirmation!
