Upper vertical divider (HH) measurements are incorrect. From left to right, they are printed as: 13 3/4" , 11 1/2" , 11 1/2" , 13 3/4" but they should be: 13 5/8" , 11 5/8" , 11 5/8" , 13 5/8".

Two errors. 1. List says that 16 1/2" Extra-Long Brass Rivets are needed but it should be 18. 2. List says that 16 #6 Flat Brass Washers are needed but it should be 18.
Page 22: Instructions for installing arms with rivets
Directions recommend setting the rivets using a sharp hammer blow from inside the case, but it may be difficult to swing the hammer in this limited space. Therefore we recommend placing a small drop of "Loctite" or another slow cure, cyanoacrylate glue (super glue) inside the cap before attempting to squeeze the two parts of the rivet together. This method should also serve to set the rivets if there are small variations of the inside diameter of the rivet cap.
