Bracket



FABRICATION: DO NOT USE THE CORDLESS DRILLS FOR THE FOLLOWING STEPS


1.) Using a file to remove any burrs on the ends of the bracket.

NOTE: Burrs are the sharp edges that stick out from your part after drilling or cutting. Burrs create two major problems. They are unsafe and they do not allow your parts to fit together properly.

2.) Drill clearance holes for #8-32 screws, two places. DO NOT TAP THESE HOLES WITH THREADS. For the location of these holes you can use the upright as a templet. Align the Upright and the Bracket together and use a scribe to trace the holes locations onto the bracket.

3.) Drill clearance holes for #10-32 screws, two places. DO NOT TAP THESE HOLES WITH THREADS. For the location of these holes you can use the Base as a templet. Align the Base and the Bracket together and use a scribe to trace the holes locations onto the bracket. There are additional instructions posted to the right of these in the lab that show how to locate the holes onto the Bracket.
