[Linrad] Re: SDR-IQ Birdies - the Solution

2009/10/17 VK2KU <

I removed the paint from the countersunk holes with a hand-held 90-
degree counterbore bit.
Then, lacking any other suitable screws or a more suitable tool,
I spent a happy and fiddly half-hour using a small flat file to remove
the anodizing from
the underside of the 8 screw-heads. I also lightly touched up the
threads to show some metal.


How about making the lower edge of the top of the box and the lip of the lower part electrically connected instead?

I've not yet taken my SDR-IQ apart, so I don't know if this is feasible, but it seems less fiddly than filing the countersunk part of the screw heads...
