That's wickedly kind of you, Clay!

I'll send you the email tomorrow, but this time I want to pay for the shipping costs. Want that WE cap, too :-).

I am interested in the new style screws as well.
Maybe I will give Kyle a call Monday... If I can remember.
It is something I have been thinking about doing for awhile. Just not an absolute requirement.. I just use a small set of slip joint pliers if I need additions torque.
I do use the purple loktite on the set screws. I don't have problems with them loosening.

BTW, so far so good with the ball joints and the plastic liner. I do use a synthetic oil with Teflon on the ball joints and keep them clean..

I too would like to get on the set screw request list? Could I email Kyle and give him my CC number?

Eamon,
A friendly bit of advice. Don't send your CC number anywhere with unencrypted email.

Our Payment Card Industry certification will not even allow us to accept any card info by email. The risk of someone intercepting the info is too high.

Yeah your right Phil. I just wasn't thinking, I was still drinking morning coffee :S
Also I guess I'm a bonehead, I just noticed after all this time the screws have a hex on them? I took out my hex wrench keys and I would think the going loose problem will be over?
I would be so lost without this forum!!:cheer:

Eamon,
If you can snag some purple loctite You can find it on Amazon).. try some of that. It takes up any slop in the threads.. but is "breakable" . You will not need to tighten the set screws as much to make them stay put..

I had the same problem but caught it the first time the threads were buggered up. I pulled the metal screws out and put in some nylon screws from Lowe's that have a big head on them. then I tightened them down really good and have not moved them since. The friction of the nylon on the threads of the fine adjustment screw keep it really snug but not too tight as a lot of force is needed to turn the screw. Or if you like the screws that are on it you can place a 1/8" long piece of a small dowel or nylon rod in the screw hole and use that material as a cushion against your threads. Then use the original screws on top of that material to push it against the threads. Hope this helps some. This is the only modification I have done to my WEPS. I am also going to put some sort of cushion on the forward edge of my base so my rods do not chip my pretty stone base. I also plan on sharpening at my local Farmers Market with the possibility of the Flea Market and my local gun range too. Keep passing on your experience at your farmers market and hopefully everyone who wishes to do this can learn from one another.
Thank you
Jed
