I am a believer of the school that the thrust bearings are for sideways thrust, not an element for the support of the weight of the mast and antenna/e.... This belief is based in part on the reality

I think every post should be taken with a grain of salt. I probably should not even respond to a post that starts off "I'm not an engineer...I dropped out of ME... but "common sense".....etc." But I

Close, but no cigar. The Hygain rotors (T2X, HAM-X) are designed for a 2 1/16 inch O.D. mast. Anything smaller should be shimmed for on-center rotation. Barry P.S. No, I'm not using shims on my 2 inc

SO lemme see, 2 1/16 versus 2" OD, that 1/16" is a thirysecond on each side of center - as in the amount it is off when it touches the side of the housing....excuse me - how thick is a bicycle playin

I used to think the same thing and thought I was prolonging the life of the rotator by just having it turn the system while the dead weight was held by the thrust bearing. That is, until it was point

As far as anal retentiveness, etc., that's what engineers are for. It's attitudes like yours that result in "they don't build 'em like they used to" quality. 73 -- Barry Kutner, W2UP Internet: w2up@o

Re: Fixed rotor clamps and mast alignment... I hold the load with a bearing on a shelf under my "pointy top" Rohn 45. Then I put the T2X rotor on a lower shelf (the lower the better) and I double nut

So with all of this in mind, I could swear that I read somehwhere that at least SOME HyGain/CDE rotator was designed for exactly 2" masts. I dug out my whole library of old and newer rotator manuals

Hi Stan, Read with fascination you post on shimming and mounting the HyGain / CDE rotators. There's only one thing I think you omitted and that has to do with all us guys who DON'T use thrust bearing
