Title: Anyone can recognize this material?
Post by: archen on April 13, 2019, 06:54:26 AM
Hello,
I'm restoring a PA34 Throttle Quadrant and need to make som adjustments to it for my sim. I need to make new longer of the piece in the picture. Anyone know what material it is?

My first guess is bakelite? It sits between the levers. Thickness is 0.9mm

Thanks Joe! A friend also told me that. Makes more sense than bakelite

Concur with Joe. Seen it on other "real world" parts.
