Square hole #1

Other than the pedestals, which I had laser cut, I think making the coupler pockets will be the worst part of this model.  They consist of a 1x2" 1/8th wall tube able to accept a Tom Bee or other coupler.  But I am rounding the ends and extending it through the end frame members.  Today I spent 8 plus hours making the rectangular hole on one endsill.  A long day of drilling, grinding, and filing but I am done with #1.  I should have counted but I am pretty sure I used 12 Dremel cutoff disks.
