[TowerTalk] Force 12 C3S Experience
Fri, 06 Nov 1998 07:12:32 -0500
Construction of my C4XL/D was flawless. Since each 3-set of holes are
hand-drilled, there is only one way the holes will match, and thats with the right
two element pieces. I believe that the only way to have a problem is to either
try riviting the wrong pieces together, or to pop the first rivit without
inserting the other two first. I would like to see screw-adjustable end element
pieces, for subsequent length adjustment, but other than that, my F-12 is just
about perfect in all respects.
