Post  Marleysky on Tue Nov 03, 2015 9:02 pm

Hello Everybody!  I'm looking for a Elevator for my SuperStunter. The one I bought has holes for pins to fit into. The one I  NEED would have the Pins that slide into the holes in the stabilizer.  see the picture... I need one like the one on the left.  

Thanks for looking !

Other than the color being different can't you make a pin from piano wire of the right diameter and glue-epoxy one end into the right, (correct side), and use it that way? Two Cents

like this:


white added area is added pin

Yes, HD. That was my original idea to file the ends till they matched and epoxy in a dowel pin of the correct size. I thought I'd try and obtain the "correct" part first before I "defile " a proper part that should work on another model. Maybe someone needs the one I have, and I need the one they have!! So, everybody.....check your parts stash.

I had the same problem.  I looked around for a while, then just decided to make it work.  I filed the elevator and stab to get minimal clearance, then glued a piece of carbon fiber tube to each piece, then glued a pin into the stab tubes.  If I were to do it again, I'd probably just cut off the protruding area in the elevator, and then glue a pin into the remaining pocket to fit into the stab.
