Flak 88 Help Required

Post by Phil Dawe » Sun Jul 19, 2015 11:26 pm

Evening Chaps,

Can I please apologise first if I am asking an obvious question the answer of which is probably staring me in the face.

On the Flak 88 which fastener does one use to connect CF0407 to CF0408? I cannot find reference to it in the instructions.

Many thanks

Phil

Hi Phil,

I would say it will be an M3x10 with a nut. You could make some like the original.

Thanks Paul! Always helpful to have a photo of the original! :)

Do you happen to know where I can source M4 castellated nuts?

Hi Phil,

You can get M4 castle nuts from eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turnbuckle-St ... 33826c3902

If you want M3 castle nuts, contact Steve Winston. Steve makes both types at 50p a nut. if you need any photos just let me know!
