Hi Dibs

Arrived safely this morning at 8.15 with a curious delivery driver wondering how a smallish packet could be so heavy!

Many thanks

A word of caution, please check the fit of the inserts on the plate when you get them as mine don't fit properly. I have tried knocking off any machining marks with a file but none of the inserts fit correctly and it seems to be the hole in the plate that is not quite circular as all the inserts get stuck in the same place.

It is not far off but and can probably do it with a Dremel but worth checking to see if it just mine that has this problem.

On most if not all, I tested all the rings\discs that went with each plate. Some did get a bit of a thump. Admittedly might have got a bit bored\tired packing them all and skipped one or 2. Are your's aluminium or steel?

I have some spare discs\rings which I can send you if yours don't want to fit.

Hi Dibs

Thanks for the offer

Mine are steel and I have tried pounding them in with a rubber mallet to no avail. Not sure it is the rings but the hole that is incorrect as all the rings snag in the same place if I file the plates they will only fit one way, better to get the plate fixed so it is round. Also the rings are a perfect overlay if I hold them together.

I will try and fix the plate but I don't have much in the way of metalworking tools but it is not massively out so should be fine.

Mine were the same but after filing the small blip off the side of both rings they fit fine.

Could it be the steel was so cold when it arrived and needed to warm up a bit to expand?

After ten minutes on the radiator they just fall in and out.

I filed off the blip as well, thinking that was all it was but it didn't work.

My garage is typically cool, I am sure I could heat the plate and the insert may drop in but then it reached the same temp it may be too tight a fit.

Do you have a dremel or something similar? Or even the "stone" type bits?

Yes I do have a Dremel with a kit of bits and will give it a go.

Mine arrived ths morning with no probs, although when the missus texted telling me I had a delivery I thought she meant the baby we're expecting that's now overdue :shock:

The rings fit fine for mine after filing off the blips,

Cheers for all the effort Dibs Much appreciated.

Plate rec'd and many thanks for the considerable effort involved in arranging all the various elements of this project.

Machining leaves a bit to be desired but nothing that can't be remedied with some judicious filing I'm sure.
