Back plates

Postby Julian Porter » Fri Dec 06, 2019 6:50 pm

I want to change the double jammer I have on deck for a triple Spinlock clutch.
All my deck fittings have back plates inside the cabin. Are these specially made or can you buy them?

They are easy enough to make if you can't track any down, Julian. I made some when I fitted additional spinlocks on Falcon. Stainless steel sheet in an appropriate thickness is easy enough to obtain (if you can find a local company making stainless steel equipment such as for food processing, theyll often let you raid the scrap bin in exchange for a tea fund donation. Failing that, theres always ebay ). For drilling holes, use a low speed with plenty of pressure and oil. If you allow the drill to spin too fast without cutting it will rapidly blunt it.

I just used the original double back plate when I switched to a triple.
