Seatback Lockers | Gluing Flanges & Cutting Out

I would soon be fitting the seatbacks so needed to have them ready. Not much work was required and it was an easy background task.

First I glued the locker opening flanges in place, simply weighting them down on the bench, as here.

When cured I cleaned them up and cut out the locker openings. I used a Japanese keyhole saw which I purchased for making holes for inspection ports and portholes. Here it is in use.

Cleaning up the edges was quick and easy using a saw rasp and a Spiraband abrasive wheel in the drill, like this.

Finally, the edges were finished off in the vice.

That's it! All ready for a test fitting.
