Re: [SergentEng] Non-closing knuckle update
I guess I can give an update of sorts. Hopefully Frank can give a moretoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Frank has been very busy working on this and believes the end solution
is in sight, if not arrived. I know it's been a long time but for those
that don't know what Frank had to do I'll try and explain it.
He had to try and figure out what change in process(es) in the past may
have caused or contributed to the problem, then tweak the design to
overcome it, cast up a bunch of couplers, assemble and test them; and
then tweak, cast, assemble and test again, and repeat ad infinitum
until hitting a design that doesn't exhibit the problem. If Franks
estimates were correct this would have taken about 2 weeks per
Now, for Luther, I'm at a bit of a loss to understand your comment.
I'm not sure if you have seen the posts before but the diecast couplers
(basically anything available as a bulk pack) were not affected by this
problem so you can quite safely use them, they would probably cover 90%
or more of your needs without ever using the investment cast couplers
which are really speciality / modern couplers.
Best to yo all,
