does anyone have good advice for drilling the angled hole thru the dash that the carburetor adjustment rod goes thru?
clamp a 1 buy very tight to the frt &back,then drill thought that.charley
Thank you,charley I imagine that will stop splintering of the cherry.
For best results you need a drill block set to the correct angle, and careful measurements for the location. Yes, you need to use sacrificial wood on the other side of the dash. Here was my set-up:
For the record, what size should the hole be?

Thanks to Greg for coming up with the idea of fabricating a guide with the right angle. I used his idea, but being the lazy bastard I am, I decided to cut the block at 21 degrees using a chop saw. Then I could clamp the cut edge to a vertical support in the mill drill and drill down to obtain a 21 degree angle when the cut edge of the block is set against the firewall.
Sorry, I meant Ward
Lots of info on this subject has been posted in the past including the hole size, correct angle, and easy way to make the drill jig block. Drill the hole vertical into the block of wood and then cut the block at an angle using the table saw. It is lot easier that way since you then don't have to drill at an angle. Search the forum for past info on this.
thanks for the input so far, George
