Another big box of parts came in today.
In chat last night, I was talking with Daren to see if he knew if Daniels dome base plate would fit into the new Domes. Until now it was unknown.
The plastic ring and the dome base plate both have the holes pre-drilled to match the rockler bearing. I started by just placing the Dome ring on top of the plastic and screwing it all together.
A few quick test fit of the dome ring and periscope lifter quickly ruled out the possibility that the ring could sit on top of the plastic. I turned it over and was about to unscrew everything, and I wondered would the ring fit on the bottom of the plastic? When I set it down.. It only took a fraction of a second to realize that this was going to work!
I flipped over the dome ring and the plastic ring to take a look and see how the dome base plate fit.... its perfect!
Other parts that came in today included Shoulder Hubs, Restraining bolt...
Booster Covers, Shoulders, Shoulder shims, Periscope Lifter
Still rushing on the perfect fit of the dome base plate and dome ring, I had to stick it on the frame and give it a spin! This guy looks familiar.
