People have been complaining that the treble stay has deep set for quite a while but upon inspection it seemed to be fine and was not getting worse. However recently one of the two fixing bolts was found loose and when the unit was looked at it was also cracked. This is where the stay team (Maurice and Mike) swing into action. Maurice has copied the pattern in a nice bit of ash and Mike has fitted the unit. Little tight in first offering but then after a tiny fettle the replacement is ready for action. Many thanks to both gentlemen.
Mike and Steve have been busy replacing the stay on the treble which has developed a deeper than normal set position over the last few weeks. The two popped up for a half hour repair which turned into a longer affair when one of the fixing bolts was found to be seized and needed cutting off and replacing. Well done all fixed now.
