Yes thank you Max and Phil. I took a pic, uploaded to the computer, opened a photo bucket account and tried to post using the upload file on the thread and it won't go?
I may be being picky? But they are supposed to be an upgrade and are not cheap to buy? The fit is totally loose on the ball joint and the threaded part of the micro adjustment is very loose as well. The tolerances went from to tight to to loose?
We are getting away from Maxs topic and I apologize for that.
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?
An old Irish toast, May the wind always be at your back, may you always have work and may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows your dead. Cheers!

They are just a slotted screw. A little bit of a pain to use, but I've always figured I could just snip off a portion of the nylon and leave it in the thread channel as a buffer between the two metal screws

Bought them at Lowes or Homedepp.

Guys, you have different screws from the ones I have... Has WE changed the screws some time ago? My screws are from the first PP 2 batch. I like the WEPS really a lot, it's one solid piece of engineering, but if there is one thing that could be improved, it's that the screws sometimes get loose during sharpening. I've read lots of mails that I should use Loctite, but they don't sell that in Europe. Do your screws work better than mine?

We did change the rod end a couple of runs ago due to supply issues. The manufacturer of the gold colored ones with the plastic lining wasn't consistent enough. It turned out to be a good thing because the plastic lining was tearing on some of them and the rods were getting really sticky. I'm still hunting for the 'just right' model and have tried a whole bunch of them. If anyone comes across on that they're really impressed with, I'd love to know about it. For the screws, we're now shipping the regular, hex head thumbscrews for the degree bar and nylon tipped screws for locking in the micro-adjustments. The only downside is that I haven't found a nylon tipped thumbscrew in stainless steel. If anyone finds a source for those, I'd love to hear about it too.

after many knives my left side fine adjustment is almost frozen solid.

kinda acts like cross threaded, but i can turn it with 7/16 box end wrench.

anyone have this happen?
.
i have oiled twice and that has improved it to where i can again use the key sometimes.

thanks

I'm jumping in kind of late here. Have you tried Phil's suggestions yet and if so, what luck? I'll keep checking here and you're also welcome to email me directly to sort it out clay@wickededgeusa.com.

Sorry for the bad picture quality. It's my mobile phone. Are these the screws the current packages ship with?

Just missed you previous two mails, Clay.

I guess there's been an update then? I'd love hex head screws, since it seens you can fasten them tighter.
