Many thanks Ed!
The way this issue with the edge of the plane’s sole is going, your kind suggestion may very well be what I will try. Should it go to pot, there is a backup plan[e].
Lee-Valley replied somewhat formal, by sending a copy of the manual on how to assemble the track and the rail; a bit like presenting the layout for an umbrella to someone soaked by an unexpected rain shower, perhaps?
A number of mechanical shops have not been able to assist. At one, which I visited, they were very questioning because of having being burgled yesterday. Tomorrow, I hope for luck with a company that is a components provider to the airplane industry. Perhaps they will take pity, and mill that edge parallel with the vertical face?
