Which again will destroy the screw tread in the mast.
Which in the end cant be tightened at all.
Which will result in only a single bolt connect it all.
Which will make it all more loose and unstable.
Which will make you sleep even worse than you do now..
Nice work. So is the grub screw flush with the side of the fuse when screwed in all the way?Foil wrote: ↑Wed Aug 07, 2019 10:56 amThis has been mentioned a few times before
Recently in the Moses wing confusion topic.
The annoying fact that the forward most connecting Allen head 6mm bolt works itself loose no matter how tight or how often you re-tighten it.
Spring washers don't work, Locktite blue has very limited success,.
And it happens to near everyone who has a Moses carbon mast, and any Moses Fuselage from all years, use any wing, race to the big ones it happens,
The longer you sail for the more loose it becomes, never the 2nd bolt a few cm to the rear, just the one nearer the front situated in the fuselage recess for securing the mast.
Last time out for 3 hours on a hard wavy session the offending bolt was so loose I spun it out with my fingers, even though the identical second bolt was still good and tight,
I have bought brand new bolts, new washers, including spring lock ones, even tried no washer, and slightly longer bolts, dry thread, greasy thread, fingers crossed and finally a bedtime prayer, no effect,
So here is my fix that does work,
Tools I needed to do it in second picture.
a bit out of order I know, but easy to understand
I can now sleep at night
My 91cm Moses mast has never had this problem either, with any of the three fuselages I've used with it.oregonkiter wrote: ↑Wed Aug 07, 2019 6:27 pmI have the 107 cm Slingshot/Moses Ghostwhisper mast with the 633 setup. I have never had any of the mast bolts loosen up at all in three years. It might be interesting to compare the difference in the 2017 Moses vs 2019 Moses masts to see what's different re the forward bolt hole.
fits nice and flush,
Even if not using Moses stuff, but had a foil with a similar connection:
