RELAY - Pneumatic Leathering Jig
There are only 122 Relay Secondary Pneumatics so it did not seem to justify any
fancy jigs. A few nails arranged in a wood block was sufficient to hold
the pneumatics for glueing.
These pneumatics have a spring screwed to the side to hold them open. It is much
easier to locate the screw holes under the new leather before the glue sets. When
the glue has gripped the leather, but before it hardens, it is possible to press the
leather into the hole and mark it. Once the glue hardens it is impossible to feel
where the holes are and relying on measurements assumes that all the holes were in
the identical spot.
