    I totally agree with you, People nowadays need to be spoon fed, I sold one of my swivels and didn't tighten the setscrew on the steel ball enough, so eventually the bag and eyebolt assembly came flying out, I was contacted on what to do, I said I probably didn't tighten the setscrew tight enough and you need to set the eyebolt back into the ball and tighten the setscrew enough so the setscrew digs into the eyebolt threads, The come back was (What's a setscrew ?)

      Sorry, I shouldn't laugh at that, I understand that everyone has their own area of knowledge and there is so much I don't know that so many could teach me, but that was funny.
      Thanks for sharing that one.

        Finally got everything checked out. There are no cracks, it was just the light shining through the space between the mounting bolt area.

          I’m looking to sell the platform and wall weight machine with Post leather gloves and Everlast kangaroo bag. If anyone here is interested let me know. I believe the wall machine is also from Narragansett.

            Stammbo, I have been looking at your photos. How much are you asking for the wall pulley system? I can give you my personal contact info if you prefer.

              Thats not from 1890-1900. The adjustable NMC was released in 1915-ish. Before that they had a version that was just a drum that hung from the ceiling with ropes.

                  The length is correct. The screw only need be long enough to allow the sled to be adjusted to max height. Given the height of the sled it not need be full lenght.
