Different screws fitted to shaft and the two on the lhs? On the 2nd photo the two lh screws don't appear to clamp the plate.

All looking good Bob, I am glad you could sort them out and I am very happy that they will be going to new homes soon.

If I knew any more I would be very very dangerous, but as I do not know much I am quite quite harmless.

May I put on record here the fantastic job that Bob has done on my DTI . Not only has Bob done a superb job  in making the device work, but the dial and the crystal look fantastic, not only that, but the  DTI now has its own beautiful box. What can I say  :mmr:

Thanks Bob you are a star.
