NOTE: All measurements are in feet and inches or fractions of an inch. The conversion to millimetres is to multiply inches by 25.4. There are 12 inches in a foot so the conversion is 304.8 mm to the foot.

NOTE: ‘ (quote) is used as shorthand for feet and “  (double quote) is used for shorthand for inches.

NOTE: AL is short for Aluminium. Gossamer Condor was joined with Aluminium pop rivets which have the great advantages that they are light, easy to put in and they can be drilled out.

NOTE: 8-32 and similar are American bolt sizes.
