TOPIC: The New Prototype Arms

Re: The New Prototype Arms 2 years 2 months ago #3672

ball joint is definatly the way to go ( been working on something for myself )

what you currently have keeps locking up on me

damn annoying

but I think its because the bottom pins are to lose the joints just keep collapsing on each other making them interlock

Christopher,
If you use a *little* bit of lube on the joints it helps this lockup significantly. I add a bit of very light oil, let it sit for a minute, work the joint in all dimensions for a bit, then wipe out any excess.
Works wonders!

I was going to do oil them but decided not to because it seemed that it was because the bottom latch moves too much and keeps wanting to fall over to the left / right

after adding oil I now see how it HELPS ( but not solves the problem ) it helps buy allowing the hinges to not bite into each other so instead of grinding against each other they slide a little

as for the new Arms I hope they are longer as I keep pulling the stones of the arms when doing my 11~14 inch *BF* butcher knifes ...

another thing was when I first got the WEPS I found the angle fasteners thread is way to long ..
no resistance to stop them from loosening
( which they did about every 20 pass's )
in the end I added springs to them and have not come UN-loose since


maybe even a bigger threaded bolt for the main clamp would be good
( mine kept coming loose and ended up gluing it down / using lock thread glue )

of cause their as also the stone holder mod shaving off what I guess is a finger guard so I can sharpen the entire blade

Hi guys! New to the forum. New to WEPS (hasn't even arrived yet) but this post put a question in my mind....

Do the new arms allow lower than 15° angles?

Thanks,

Ken

Hey Ken,

Then new arms come with a riser that raises the vise up by an inch and reduces the angle by 2 degrees, so on a knife that extends 5/8" from the top of the vise, you can now get to 13 degrees. With knives that are wider and extend higher above the clamp, you can get even lower.

Thanks Clay. 13° is perfect for some of my favorite EDCs. I'm in!
