Agreed Rob. However if we does Mess up knowing he can get them fixed up for reasonable money he will be the first one to bemoan the fact he didnt in the 1st place.

Plus an old(ish) thread that hasn’t been updated by the OP with the finished article…….
Of course the chances of that happening are pretty good, if OP followed thru with any of his photos. Won't be the first guy to mess up a pair. Or the last. If the OP is feeling down, I didn't want to be another guy salting the wound. Lol.

Maybe after this photo something terrible happend 😢

Metal on metal is never a good idea. Hope that was just for photos sake.

Linegear for example are too soft.after the tuneup with those they feel like they'll be back in a month.there needs to be some compression when pressing in the pins.late model frames are almost impossible to get tight again because the molds are worn out or the tabs were sanded into a round instead of a square.

Have to say Fella I have used LG (Admittedly their hardest option) and never had an issue with them. They are back to Factory Spec. I have a JE Gen 1 Juliet Frame that Oakley did for the previous owner & IMHO they are too tight... 🤔
