[TowerTalk] FW: Ham III rotor brake failure

Could be broken springs(I believe there are a total of 4) , stuck brake
wedge, broken brake wedge, or a broken brake pin.   I feel that they are
pretty easy to service and have found that parts are readily available from
several sources.

Hope this info is helpful.   Good luck.

Getting ready to take down my beam and rotor. The brake does not work. I
hear it click when it is energized on the tower.  Would that mean a spring
might be broken ?  Rotates fine - wind blows it whatever way it wants to.
