Re: Chainplate craziness

the ring a bell trick works too bu suspending the plate on a wire(works better on longer plates)

if it rings true by tapping it everywhere you are fine

if there is a thump or dud dead sound smack the plate on the floor and wacth it crumble and break right nefore your eyes...

even if it looks fine on the outside
