A method of repairing damaged locating slots in signal cores is accomplished using a specially designed tool in the following manner. A signal core 1 is seen in the drawing with a damaged locating slot 2. Its repair is accomplished by placing the signal core 1 over the locating slot pin 3 of a base plate 4. The base plate 4 contains four locating slot pins corresponding to the four locating slots on the signal core, but only one slot and pin are seen. A partially cured epoxy prepreg sheet 5 is placed over slot pin 3 as it protrudes above slot 2 of signal core 1. A sheet of copper foil 6 is similarily placed over the slot pin 3. A release sheet (not seen) is then placed over the copper foil 6.
