d.elliott Posted February 13, 2006 Author Share Posted February 13, 2006 Its happened, another Lachenal with a severely worn arm/ pivot post due to the arm being cranked to get around other elements of the action. This arm was bad, there was nothing to loose by trying plan 'C'. The action arm/pivot was already a write off. So much so that the arm was rotated by 45 degrees, it fouled an adjacent button, its own button was about 1.5 mm low, and the pad face was all but sheared off. But (Smugly he writes) I have now a simple repair that recovers both the pivot post and the arm, buying a life extension of a good many years. It anyone is interested, I will do some sketches. It surely is grand when it all works out, SPANKING!! as they say in some parts of Yorkshire.... oops, nothing to do with the less polite side of some peoples lives, I assure you. modestly Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
