    Parking Brake

    This is my first post here but while lurking I have noticed how friendly and helpful everyone is. This is a great forum.

    I'm in the last stages of building an EMB 170 style parking brake and I'm trying to determine the length of the handle. Every picture I can find of it is taken from the same angle (Cockpit Door) and none seem to have something near it I can use as a reference. I am guessing it is about 4 inches (100mm) but it could be as short as 3" or as long as 5+".

    If anyone knows the size or can point me to some pictures of the pedestal take from the side I would be most thankful.

    I am going to have the same problem (dimensions running front to back) on my next project, the throttle.

    Thanks in advance,
    Terry
