modtour4,
Thanks. I borrowed some from my friend Jeff Hamilton when I built FFR3923 last year! They are great. I wouldn't think of putting a FFR together without them!
Thanks, Jim

Get a few #30 drill bits also, they are a touch bigger than 1/8 and makes thing go together easier.

BTW, get more than 25, you'll use em.

I see guys mention getting 40 - 50 or more clecos all the time to build the FFR and I can't, for the life of me, understand what the heck you use all these clecos for. I don't recall ever using more than 10 on any piece, and that was only for a couple of the big ones. What the heck are you going to do with 50 clecos?

I read the posts about 50 etc. I bougth three bags full, two are still unopended. I used more than 10 once or twice, when fitting panels on both sides at the same time.

Its for us types that like to assemble a bunch of stuff but not make the final commitment I guess. I had them all over the place at certain stages. I have to also confess....on polished aluminum they kinda look cool too.

aircraft spruce also has them...also recommend the #30 bits from them with the spring stop that stops you from punching into the inside of the tube when you go through and toasting your bit. I did entire car with 2 of the spruce bits.
