Getting Tie Rods Parallel To Braces On Mine Kits
« on: September 21, 2018, 11:37:45 AM »
I'm currently building the Leaverite Mine from the old Caboose Hobbies Builders In Scale kit.  This is the 2nd kit now that has lots of tie rods directly under cross beams (the other was Campbell Scale's Chama Coaling Tower).  I've had trouble getting the tie rods to come out perfectly parallel to the cross ties.  Anyone out there have any tips on how to drill the holes on the uprights to get the tie rods parallel?
