Looks like my CGEM II azimuth adjustment knob threads are beginning to strip from inside the mount's housing. There is lots of play from both azimuth adjustment knobs. It's only a matter of time when they will no longer thread properly.
The azimuth knobs are 8mm threads. I'm contemplating retapping the mount housing azimuth adjustment threads to 10mm and adding the 10mm ADM altitude adjustment T knobs in place of the standard 8mm azimuth knobs. Is there a better solution? **I do not want to use a helicoil kit.** I want to fix it right the first time. Also, what size are the azimuth adjustment knobs on the CGX-L? Maybe I can use those if they are 9mm or bigger.
Any input is much appreciated!
