Idler Plate

With all of the splice plates completed I started on the idler plate. It was fairly simple to cut out and create the radii on the ends. I have it marked for drilling but I need to determine the diameter for the last hole. It takes a fastener but the diameter is not marked. I’ll have to lookup the correct size and decide if I want to ream the hole or just drill to size. I think reaming would be a good idea as it will ensure a tight fit for the hardware. I don’t want any slope in the control system.
