spikes for Centaur Minor

Postby wklein on Sat Dec 20, 2014 8:41 pm

I am fortunate to have acquired a pair of Centaur MInors with stands, but no stand/leveling or carpet piercing spikes. I don't immediately need the carpet spikes but am in Los Angeles & fear even a small quake will send the Minors tumbling off the stands. I would greatly appreciate hearing of any available spikes!

Hello

The size is 1/4-20 tpi. I have some here, but easier to get them from the source in the US;-

It is worth gently removing the threaded inserts, refitting carefully with a little mdf glue (a dot or two on the threads about half way up, screw in touch tight immediately). Clean off excess glue!

I lightly oil the threads and add a stainless or brass washer, to prevent binding. Don't go more than light finger touch tight with the lock nuts!


Take care - Graz
