Trying to save my back, and make things a little easier while doing
dovetails. And it should help with routing and vision too.
Cheap 2x4's and some pipe clamps that I bought and never used.. been
sitting in the plastic the heads came with. Finally found a use for them
since Jorgs and Besseys rule...
The aluminum portion that the screw handle threads into breaks but not
where it is threaded.
One thing that I did discover, if the screw begins to feel rough to turn
when applying pressure it is not likely to be the actual threads. The end
of the threaded shaft where the large washer is riveted benefits from som
sprat libe where the washer is joined at the end of the screw shaft.
If I remember tomorrow I'll take a picture of one of the broken pieces.
Jorgensen does not want the broken parts back when the send the cast iron
Almost stupid simple. You need a small Philips screw driver. Slide the
clamp end assembly off of the bar, remove the Philips head screw, slide the
little door off and remove the guts.. Swap the wedges and tension spring
and reverse the steps to reassemble. The first time will take about 4
minutes. After knowing what has to be done, about 2 minutes.
IIRC the replacement part comes with instructions.
Just checked mine, none show signs yet of stress cracking.
Took one apart. Never noticed that it's pretty easy just unscrew the
front piece and pull it out that way.
Curious, when they sent you the steel replacement, did they send you the
nylon pads that they are putting in the new ones? I assume that pad is
somehow to prevent the lock up that you get sometimes if you put the
clamp away with the screw all the way backed out and you have no room to
loosen it any more... Not real sure.. of maybe it's a shock preventitive
from dropping them to the bottom and cracking.
Thanks, it's always evolving.
everytime I find myself too lazy to do something, I make a change to
like everyone else I still suffer clutter. If I through something on a
table, I just keep moving it... so that's what I try to avoid and
organize for... would rather work in the few hours I have each week over
