Swift Audubon HR/5 - repairing the eyepiece arm

Recommended Posts

once the F1 race finished I took a look at fixing the parts with epoxy, roughed up the surfaces lightly with a file and then wipe over with degreaser. Once dry mixed the 2-part Gorilla epoxy and fitted the parts together.

Likely the screws will be held with the epoxy too, perhaps not so good but its done and set now lol.

I popped in a dimple for the IPD index then after a test fit realised it's too close to the hinge, hence there's 2 - yeah measure once and all that rather than take a guess. It'll be hidden tho so who'll know :D 

Will file/grind back the epoxy to level once it's had a long while to set and then this part can be prepped for painting. Prior to this I test fitted the whole thing back onto the body with occular and eyecups, pleased to report it ran as it should and alignment was looking good when scanning the rooftops and aerials. So far so good...
