However, it is a lesson in what not to do. Of course everyone has heard the sage advice to buy a copy of “Acceptable Methods” (AC 43.13-1B), and I had even bought my copy.  However, I had not read my copy when we attended Head Start. Of particular note is the section on Bolts.  Lots of good information on how much grip to have, how many threads to allow to stick out, how not to have any thread under a rotating shaft, and how important bolt hole tolerance is.  I initially made my bolt holes way too big, so I’m remaking my actuator brackets.
