Nice build thread Tom. Lots of attention to detail. I was going to say "Don't get too get too crazy!" but who am I to talk

G10 has the benefit of woven cloth layers making it near impossible to split apart. Also a smear of epoxy on the castelated portion of the PEM nut is plenty strong for bonding it in place.
Also I use any kind of PEM nut that is available, not specialized ones, because I do not depend on high insertion forces (and I'm cheap!). I bought a nice assortment of inexpensive PEM nuts from Missile Works for 20 cents each. HERE
