Sig Control Line Handle Dimensions Wanted

Post  NEW222 on Thu Feb 02, 2017 7:17 pm

Hi there. I really like the looks of the Sig Control Line handle and do not have one. But I was fortunate enough to find a good picture online that I can use as a template. The only thing is that I do not have any dimensions given, so with that, this is why I am here. Does anybody here happen to have one laying around that you could please possibly give me dimensions of. I have a program to make it to size, just that I would require something to measure. I feel the best dimensions to use and are easily accessible would be those of either 'A-A, B-B, or C-C'. Or even if possible, the flats from top to bottom where the line winds on. Anyways, thank you in advance.

P.S. This is cross posted on another site so it may look familiar.

The handle only costs $5-6. Your time has got to be worth more than that right? You might be better off building the Renger 1/2A handle. Or buying one it's only $10

Yes, I know it is a relatively inexpensive handle, and I have a Renger 1/2a handle here too. I am just finished a good portion of projects and am now trying to enjoy building different 1/2a control line handles in the evenings and free time. I have enough planes to destroy to make room, I mean fly and learn aerobatics on, and it is too cold and there is not not enough room in the garage to ply with my little Cox engines (my run bench is being weathered outside still too). Got my fishing stuff in order, so thought I wanted to build a few handles. This will be number four overall, and number three in the past couple weeks. Just like to tinker around.

Checked the Sig website and apparently all C/L seems to be gone including the Cool Sig C/L starter kit.
It had the plastic handle, bottle of fuel, line material, and battery wires/ glow plug connector.
I got a NIB kit at a closing LHS and should have gotten the last one but the fuel bottle in it leaked and ruined the kit , the shelf and some other model kits. A big mess but looking back I still should have gotten it too..

Chancey, at the risk of giving redundant info...

Line-spacing A to A is 3.5", B to B is 2.25" and C to C is 1.0". The "tab" for the lines is 4" wide The radius on the 4 finger-grips is 1.125" (overlapped) within a 3.75" wide grip-spacing. The flats for line-storage are spaced 4.5" apart. Overall measurements are 4.75" x 2.812". The thickness is 3/8" at the grips and around the perimeter.

Check your bellcranks for their line-spacing.. (or one's you plan to obtain) to consider the option of a 1:1 ratio with the handle's line-spacing.

I love when people make their own handles! I haven't tried yet.. but someday I will. Best of luck with yours Chancey!

Thank you very much for your time and help. It is greatly appreciated. I will post pictures once I get underway. If it warms up even a bit this weekend, I will probably start on it.
