Punched flights sans punch
Here was my first attempt at self punching my flights for lock rings. I used a box knife and a metal rule to cut slots through the flight against a wooden block and trimmed out the ends with my small electronics snips, sized just snug to .220" It took about thirty seconds each, works great, holds the flight nice and snug on the shaft.

Thanks G, it worked fine but a little tedious keeping the slick mylar flight from slipping while cutting, so I will probably get one of the punches for ease. I do like the fit on the shaft with regular Target lock rings.
