Default Straightening Variable capacitor vanes

Hi There,

Being in the position of having dropped a variable capacitor and bent the frame I had the job of straightening up the vanes on the rotor.

Fortunately AOL came to my rescue, or one of their Cd's did!

I found that the cd with the circular ridge towards the centre filed off was the exact thickness to fit snugly between the vanes, I cut out a 90 degree section of the disc using a sharp pair of scissors and it made straightening the vanes up much easier.

Regards to all
