    Can you show the dimensions for the new underfolder arm? I've got your jig, but it was one of the first and I've got a Underfolder kit here waiting. Either that or can you sell just an updated arm?

    I must be using this thing wrong as with ONE build it mushroomed both the hardened inserts and also bent the #3 arm. I'm not putting excessive pressure on it as it took all that force to simply smash the rivets (I'm not somebody who is rough on thier tools). By press arm updates do you mean #s 1-3 ? If so I guess I'm interested in an update as I have one of your first and this thing is going to be done after one build.

    How are the inserts set? I'm going to have to drill them out and put in a grade 8 bolt insert instead and I'll have to find another #3 arm.

    I think the basic premiss is great, but I think this early design is a bit fragile.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had some difficulties with the jig. As I mention above, I'm working on a different design arm that will be more robust. As soon as I have some through my testing, I'll ship one to you. It may be a few days, so your continued patience is very much appreciated.

    Hey Defens, do you have a time frame on when the new heat treated arms might be ready for those of us who bought jigs from the first run? I am in need of new arms; I have arm bending problems and no way of building the kits I have. Please help me out here as soon as possible. Thanks, LRRP-87.

    Default Heard from Defens...

    Hey guys, just got an e-mail from Defens. He has been undergoing surgery, and that's what has caused the holdup. He told me that he'll be taking off 2 weeks in the Christmas/New Years time period to turn out the jigs and arms. Hopefully it won't be that much longer; and let's all put in a good word for him in the case of his recovery from surgery. I'll update with info as I get it.
