Hi Josh, it's not so much that the angles may not be the same without the riser.
It's more to do with the length of the stroke with the stone using the the new arms and "no" riser.
You can see in the pics that the top part of the stone can't be used.

[ ... ]

It seems the riser was included to allow the ball joint addition.
See point "A" is roughly the same.

The new crossbar was added for a couple of reasons.
The first being a "belly" was found on the old crossbars and the tighter fitting new "L" bracket wouldn't fit.

[ ... ]

The second was the ability to achieve more acute angles (13°) and therefore an angle dimple location revision.
While this thought was going around, a longer crossbar would also offer 35°.

I would like to try an even thicker riser and longer arms.
So the full length of the stone can be used.

Very smart observations, Chris! I never looked at it this way. I guess you're an engineer as well?

I have worn many hats. ;)

Of course the length of the stroke varies with the angle used.
Thirty five degrees uses all the stone but could use longer arms.

I would like to throw in another spacer (or an adjustable option) for acute angles.
Machine the sides of the clamp also.

Now if I can only get some parts from Clay? ;)

Great to hear your voice again, apologies for being a wanker! :whistle:
