Daisy wheel modification...savin' money

Comments



  • Sorry if any of my comments were construed as negative, I was just passing on what someone else taught me regarding how to position/turn the stock daisy wheel in such a manner that it does not change its setting when you open the lid.  It works like a charm and I was appreciative when it was explained to me so just passing on info.  If someone wants to go this new alternative wingnut route, then certainly free to do so. 

    I really don't see what you or anyone else here did wrong.


    Just seemed like he was catching some grief. Sorry for misunderstanding. I line mine up and dnt have a lot of problems until I need to use the bigger vent in the daisy. It still wants to close then no matter how i line it up.

    I don't know how it could still be closing on you if you line up screws like shown in photos earlier--it is a matter of gravity--once the screws are lined up the screw holding the larger disc is at the highest point when you open the lid, so the big disc hangs straight down--can't figure out how yours is moving when you open the lid???--this would be defying gravity.

  • Obviously Im not doing it right. Ill look at pics on my computer. Cant see it too great on ifone. Thx.

    I went out and looked. I was under impression that the outer screw had to stay centered of the dome. I see now. Im a dumbass. Thx for setting me straight.

    This happens from time to time. Someone post something they're proud of and folks jump on them and tell the poster how they should be doing it. Who cares. He spent $2 and created something he's happy with.
    You been hitting the PBR?  :)) :))

    Once upon a time, I entertained the thought of cleaning all of the 'gunk' out from the underside of my daisy wheel. Luckily I remembered the threads like this, with people complaining about the wheel sliding around on them while opening and closing. I really haven't had the problem in years. I have to use the ash rake to tap my vents to the position that they need to be in.
