Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

David, the plates will not be bent, they will be bedded precisely on a curved bed. Theywill come out the same way at the same angle. I can deal with the look. Actually the look tells other owners of Irwin's I've take the time to fix a problem they still have

The other stuff, it could happen. Point loading, I don't think so - when I bed the plates I spread the load plenty with a pad of glass of putty and gook.

The option of putting it back was is a non starter, machine screws and all just makes no sense. I'd be right back where I am with no way to inspect.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
