Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes living with misery a lot easier!
Quote:Where do you get the parts to make this happen? Is it an easy order? David, have you considered Tom Hilton's 'mod' of putting a spacer in for the declination to allow it to skip hitting the motors?Also, on a side note. You guys have had your mounts for awhile, have you noticed any wear and tear on them? Someone mentioned their fear of getting an 'older' mount like an MI250 was that the gears/worm would start to get 'old'. Are you guys noticing any performance degradation over time?I'm a few weeks out from finally getting mine setup... I can't wait to try it!
Quote:Hey Frank...I was considering the very same modification to my MI250. It's one of the only weak points. The adjustment rods with the USS thread is just not sensitive enough. Replacing them with SAE thread would be a very good upgrade, I would think. The only other less than perfect part of the mount is its inability to go much beyond the meridian. And I have the Maxon motors that stick out further than the stock motors, so I have to watch very carefully.David
Quote:I'd be "in" on the spacer as well if someone is driving it... David, what about you?(you'll find us MI-250'ers are a bit of a "clubby bunch")
