Lower Outrigger Construction
Keith Rowell Design
The outrigger posts are attached at the ankle and the shoulder plate. The threads on the RC ball joints are so small the the screw steel so hard that it's difficult to drill and tap. Instead, I just cut the threaded shaft short and glued it into the top of the socket head with JBweld.
It's very strong. The outrigger at the shoulder intersects the screw at a 90deg angle though. I'm not sure what to do about that one yet. But suspect more JBweld will be involved.
