Well I think this topic has been pretty much done to death

Quite the contrary given the number of times the templates have been downloaded (1120+ to date), I expected many more.

Thanks for the details, they will be a big help to others that want to make their own. One member refused to post anything other than photos, so I had to take other steps to supply a list of parts he used. His excuse was it cost him a few dollars to fabricate the controls and there wasn’t anyway he was going to post it.

Luckily for everyone that builds these, American XV535 1996 was generous enough to trace the templates for me to share and it cost him $100 plus shipping for the set of controls he bought.

Your experience, along with details may inspire others to do the same. Those that lack the tools and equipment you have, can find alternative methods to fabricate similar parts.

Once again, thank you and great job !
