Main gear toe alignment

Some measurements were taken to verify toe alignment.

The fuselage was aligned perfectly level and with a laser the centerlineĀ  determined:

2 aluminium angles were clamped at the bottom of the main gear and some measurements were taken:

Conclusion is that the left leg has 0.05 degrees toe out which can be consider as zero. The right leg however has 0.86 degrees toe in!

With a tapered spacer going from 0.5 mm to 1.46 mm the toe alignment on the right side can be corrected to be zero as well. A quick prototype was machined:
