levers from etching frame with a sharp hobby knife blade. The middle U
section needs to be perpendicular to both outside handles of the cut lever. To
bend the middle section we suggest grasping one side of the U with
pliers and grasping the straight portion next to it with another pair of pliers.
Then, with little force, rotate one hand 90 degrees to make the U
perpendicular to the outside of the cut lever. Do this to both sides to complete.
Once you have completed the step above, bend the small end pieces of the grab
irons 90 degrees so they are facing the opposite direction of the U.
These little nubs should rest on the pilot of the locomotive while
the U portion hangs out over the coupler. You can use the mounting
pins supplied with the cut lever to mount it on the pilot of the locomotive. This
requires a #80 drill bit. |
