Bearings

Postby garyfergus@hotmail.com » Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:32 am

When i first got my AMP-v2 the bearing at the base of the device was slack. I tightened it up and it's remained tight for maybe 40 or 50 measuring operations. However, now one of the other bearings has started to work loose, introducing some slop into the process.

It's no problem to tighten them up, but I was wondering if you have any advice on the appropriate torque?

Thanks,

HIdden inside the little bosses on the backside of the AMPv2 are set screws. These set screws are used to jam the front screws that you use to tighten up the bearings.
Once you get the correct tension (as soon as the slop is removed), use a 5/64" hex wrench in the back to tighten that set screw into the front while holding the front screw still. This will jam the two screws together. The front screw should not rotate when you open and close the AMPv2.

Hope this helps!
