    Default Drag Tube Question

    Hi All,

    Out of the 8 (SC31004-007) Drag tubes in my kit only 4 would easily slide into the Spar Fittings. The other 4 are a tad too big. The ones that wont slide right in are around 1.0055 where the tubes that do slide in are around 1.0030. Has anyone else had this issue? What do you think would be the best solution to remove that little bit of material needed?

    Thanks

    Dave

    Id take an abrasive paper, wet/dry, aluminum oxide, roll of 240 grit, etc and twist the tube by hand in it. Removing a couple of thousandths wont take long.

    I wish wed known about the Sandpoint fly in breakfast. It wasnt promoted very well. I looked online too because weve enjoyed going to it in the past. Btw, there is one in Polson this coming Saturday, the 8th. It is a good one.
