Building the fraim

@Richard.Dane - just trying to clarify this one line in your guide:

“Tighten to the point of resistance then tighten about 1/8th of a turn further until you fear that the spanner will begin to deform.”

Are you saying that one should tighten until one fears the spanned will begin to reform - but no more than 1/8th of a turn max from the point of resistance?

Or continue tightening, 1/8th of a turn at a time until it’s super duper tight and one runs the risk of deforming the spanner?

Any spanner - or just the one provided ? :slight_smile:

Also point of resistance - is that while one is finger tightening it?

Or is the point of resistance while one is using the spanner - so quite tight already - and then some more - the last 1/8th of an inch…


Not any spanner - a decent one will deform the Fraim. :upside_down_face:

I’m referring to the thin spanner included in the Fraim.

FWIW, I use a Britool spanner and tighten to where I feel resistance. Then nip up with one more nudge on the spanner. You get a feel for it…
