Earl,

What's the thickness of the triangular Masonite section?

Looks like it is about .22 or .23 material.....I guess nominally that would be 1/4" Masonite?

Much earlier in the thread someone said their launcher had 1/4-inch masonite.

OK! I put rev A in my previous post, and took down the first file. I modified the dimensions per Earl's guidance, and added the base plate thickness per Scott and Wolf.

Again, if someone else has an LIA-100 on hand, they might can add some additional info. My scanner is down otherwise I'd do another tracing and scan that.

Thanks again,

oops just saw this bit...so you say it should be fatter? see the pic, it is about 1.8"

Yes, that dimension should be 2.3 inches.

OK, with the other dimensions you've given me, and rough angles from your original sketch this is what I came up with...

Excellent...Rev B is now uploaded to my earlier post. (Hope Scott doesn't have a limit on how many times you can change the files in a post )

Not a problem. Thanks for the drawing, David, and thanks for the dimensions, Earl!
