Went to an estate sale and picked up a cordomatic 800.
It won't lock the cord in place, so after taking it apart I saw that it
needed new pawls to stop it. I started fabricating new ones.
Image is here.
These were riveted in with pop rivets... How do I re- pop rivet them in
and still allow them to swing freely? I thought about a cardboard spacer
but that would be too much trouble trying to remove the cardboard to
free it back up.
For my $1 investment I hope to get this working. 1 hours work to make 3
of these pawls so not too bad while I'm waiting for some wood I got last
week to acclimate to my shop.
Not possible. this is thin sheet metal.
I wound up taking a totaly different approach.
I used some 6-32 T-Nuts, and removed the barbs, drilled them out,
lowered the barrel height.
They wound up being washers, and limiters... worked like a charm.
