So ,I’ve ordered all the bearings (without the trust bearings) and new specially treated axels, so I can re-anodize and re-paint every part.
So far so good….But what I have found when de anodize the parts shocked me: Cracks all over the long sections of the arm ,especially where the axels and the bearings are.
I’ve ask a “specialist” ,who told me that those can be welded and will work fine. Hmmmmmm…….
Tried on one of the sections ,but I did not like how it looks.
So the dilemma was : to save this arm for spears, or to order a new sections .As I’m not really a rich guy and the arm with my back-up sled where already for sale ,I’ve decided to make new sections .
It took the machinist almost two months, but yesterday I had them and send them for anodizing.
Do any of you guys seen this before?
I know IIIa/Luna arms are old ,but this….
