There is just one etch for the EasiChas and detail. Numbers shown in square brackets [ ] in the instructions refer to the etch.  The part number appears on the etch diagram at the end of these instructions.  Certain parts, e.g. bolts, wire, springs, are not numbered.

Some of the parts are small and easily damaged, so do please take care.  Parts should be removed from the sheets as and when needed by use of a small scalpel etc., and the tabs and etch cusp removed with a small fine-cut file. 

All folds and bends are made with the half-etched line on the inside unless otherwise stated. 

On some parts it is necessary to emboss rivet / bolt heads from the reverse sides by use of a punch.

There are half-etched test rivet holes on the back of the etch edging strip. Use these to get used to forming uniform rivets.

You should look at the instruction regarding pre-preparing the wheels before commencing building.
