My belt sander exploded and sucked in one of the C-668 parts I was working on. After a fair amount of dissasembly I was able to extract the part - it had a few scratches but they were easily removed with the scotch bright wheel.
It seems that the C-668's as supplied by Van's don't match the full size blueprint drawings. After trimming two to match the size of the drawing I found that they did not fit tightly in the plane.
The problem is that the middle line in the C-668 detail view on dwg. 42 is drawn at the wrong location. I guess I'll be ordering two replacement C-668's.
