Are "all" the black screws #8-32?

Yes, I think so. I need find out how many we sent out with the #8-32 screws. I should know tomorrow.

If there are threaded holes on the WEPS I don't see how 8-32 would fit (without force or re-tapping the hole) when it is tapped for 10-32.

#8-32 is smaller!
So it seems they threaded a new, smaller hole instead of the usual #10-32 one.
Do they now simply send out "pointy" #8-32 screws or recall the "L" brackets, drill/tap and fit the original #10-32 screws?
I'm guessing new screws. ;)

I had the same problem with one of mine, thought it was a problem with the tap job for the angle arm unit at first till I switched screws with the side that was ok. Got a machine screw from hardware store to stabilize it. Put it on the non dimpled side . Works fine.

Have email and voice mail in to WE re what my problem turned out to be.

Machine screw works fine, just not as convenient as a thumb screw.

I was curious about this post... was there a difference in the two screws that came with the kit? (not the replacement you bought).

So call me a newbie, but one set screw is obviously for clamping onto the base rod, the other does what exactly? It looks like the arm is tight in the bracket, and has a nut to tighten it to the bracket. So what is the 2nd screw for? What am I missing?

Micro adjustment!

Loosen screw "A", adjust "B" to lengthen or shorten. (change angle)

Thanks again to Oldawan for stealing his photo.

Yes, the 'bad' screw seems slightly bigger.

By the way cbwx, do those kinds of bees travel in pairs?

That's awesome, I've only fiddled with the older arms, and polished the new waiting on my basebar.
I have to say, the older are very hard to adjust to the same angles.

Cool. Thanks. Thought it might help narrow down the problem.

Sorry about that. I updated my post. I did realize I forgot to attach the picture. You can see the black screw has a flat end and the silver screw is rounded on the end. The round end allows for the screw to set into the pre-drilled angle indention's correctly.

Clay you most likely already know this - not just the Pro pack II's. shipped. It is also like myself who ordered the new arm update. I wondered why the new arms did not have the nicer stainless screws and had drop the thread size, now we know. Are the black screws even stainless?
Thanks.
