Ok gang, I need to replace 5-6 balls on a BaB Im restoring... May end up replacing all 15 if the client chooses.
Drill out the rivets, a given but how about the pressed-in post? Is my only option to notch the hole on the new ball arm and slip it in under the post cap?
I just replaced an arm on a Diamond Jack, the pressed-in post was loose so I drilled that out too and replaced it with a long #5 screw and cut down the yellow roller so I could use a nut on the inside and a nut on the outside. (you need to ensure the yellow roller freely rotates for properly contact closure etc) I really needed to tap the armature hole 5-40 thus using only 1 nut on the outside... next time
But its a lot of work to replace the pressed-in post on every armature.
Any suggestions? If I have to replace every ball Im going to destroy a lot.
Anybody got a bunch of spare BaB, FP, KoD or DJ armatures they want to sell?
