|1||#1 Remove ground throw unit from switch.|
|2||#2. Tape turnout points in centered position as shown. Drill pilot hole thru throw bar and layout.|
#2a Drill second hole centered between rails through bench work at point shown in picture.This is very important for correct Blue Point mounting alignment.
#3. This is special drill used to make flush cut hole completely through your benchwork.
|4||#4 Note - this is a special tip.|
|5||#5. Measure or approximate the thickness of layout bench work. Put the special 1/4" drill bit in drill motor. Cut piece of 1/4" tube so the portion of drill bit showing measures the thickness of layout plus 1/4". If layout is 1/2" thick + 1/4" = 3/4" then there would be 3/4" of bit showing.|
|6||#6. Add 1/4" SAE washers as shown in the picture.|
|7||#7. Drill hole in layout using the pilot hole that you drilled earlier (step 2) If you are using plastic or brass 1/4" tubing put an additional 1/4" SAE washer between layout and tube. This will protect the end of tube.|
|8||#8. Remove washers one at a time from drill until you just break thru the layout surface. You may need to clean up the hole exit with a hobby knife.|
#9. Draw centerline between 1/4" hole and smaller hole drilled previously in step 2A
#10. Draw black centerline on drill template and place in 1/4" hole. Line up both black lines and this will give you correct alignment of
drill template before the 4 holes are drilled to mount Blue Point machine.This is very important for correct Blue Point mounting alignment. Now go to Blue Point installation instructions and start at step 7.
