Hi All, There seems to be some confusion about my posting regarding
the cracked/split pin block. So I've drawn up a nice color picture to
look at. I've attached it to this letter so it can be put into the
Archives. I've also put it up at my web site:
The picture is drawn to scale (as best I could). Each lamination is
about 3/16" thick. Although I can't see to count, I believe there are a
total of six or seven laminations.
The question remains:
Could something as severe as this happen within less than 3 years all
Note: the laminations are not bowed (like in warping) and the bottom
lamination has a crack in line with a tuning pin.
