Finishing the reed pan
After the air holes are done, I do all 1.5 mm holes for the thread 0f the 2 MG screws to hold the reed aluminum frames; maple is tough and can be treated like soft metal.

Remember hole for a guide pin on ”!& - Action board 2”? It gets a piece of Swedish grill skewer and then the reed pan is glued onto it. We are getting there!

Drilling holes in reed pan, for the 2 MG screws to hold the reeds.

Cut a thread and test. I don’t care that it is wood – maple is like plastic
and the screw is long, OK?

This is what we needed the hole made on ”16 - Action board 2” for.

Sandwich anyone? Finally gluing the the reed pan onto the base plate.
