It is a great place to work isn't.
It sux..... I'm probably going to remove the whole dern mechanism next time I have to get under there; hopefully the damn slide won't fall out!!!
And even another change..... Instead of BUTTING the new pieces under the bolt heads, I'll bore holes such that I can fit the bar stock UNDER the existing bolt head (just like another washer) and then thru bolt the lower (new) bolt.
I sorta screwed myself (!!!); I bored out the housing so I could use bolts AND nuts on the original 4 bolts. Now the heads are turning when I try to loosen the nuts.
That's why I need to remove it ALL next time. Should I patent this so I can make s***loads of money from FR??
