Drill endpin hole


Drill endpin hole

I do not understand very well because to do endpin hole when the back cover is already attached to the ribs. It would not be easier to drill the hole before sticking the cover?
Best regards

having the back plate attached allows you to use the plate holder to hold the body firmly in position for the actual drilling.

I also don't understand this... Or, it is quite confusing and complicated! I'll be happy to see more answers here!

I think that the advantage of doing this is that you can secure the bottom plate, the attached rib assembly all in the plate holder (that you used for carving the plates). That way you can secure the whole thing to the bench and give you better control to line up the drill.

I actually did it differently (basically missed this instruction :-) ). While the rib assembly was still attached to the mold, I used my drill press to help make sure everything was square.

I think the main thing is to ensure that your assembly is secure and you can avoid drilling the hole askew.
