    >My wing nut on the Tighter is broken.<

    How in the world did it break?

    >I think we have in Germany diferent nuts.<

    >Can you help me?<

    Yes, that is an English unit, #8 wing nut. Might as well get a couple along with new 2.5 inch, #8, round head, machine screws.

      I had several problems with slipage and Penisrotation in the Hanger. The last time I tried to tighten the Hanger more. And today was the thread of the wing nut broken. Maybe I did make it a little to thight. The srew seems to be ok. I will go tomorow to the market und try it with M5.

        Du you know where in Germany I can buy this wing nut? I was today in the Market and buy a M4 screw with M4 nut and wing nut. The Problem is that the M4 nut that is on the on the round head is to small.

          No idea. I can send you some, for shipping costs.

          Be sure you are using a light oil, or Vaseline, on the top bolt.

            I replace the bottom two adjustments bolts with german bolts and I have now two wing nuts for the top bolt. Thank you Bigger for you support.

              Did you replace the two bottom bolts exactly the way they were?

                did you try importing from the UK? Shipping from there usually runs quite cheap.
