EQ6-R Altitude adjustment bolts

I an sure this topic has been raised in the past but I wonder if there is any recent developments. I refer to the rear altitude bolt on the EQ6-R. Mine has become sloppy and difficult to operate. Not impossible, but now nothing like the bolt adjustment it was when the mount was new! Has any EQ6-R owner had similar issues and managed to find a solution? Thanks - John

If its getting 'sloppy', check its not about to strip the thread (in the mount part).

If you adjust the altitude with a loaded mount, without taking the strain off first, its basically too much load for the threads in aluminium.

Thanks for the comment. No, my poor description of ‘sloppy’ relates to the lever end of the bolt. I do always try to take some weight off when adjusting the rear bolt but the issue is getting the spring loaded lever to properly mate with the end of the bolt. A pain when you polar align with the AIR,

Next week i will have a go at making one or two of these (i need one for my neq 6 pro)

I have some small engineering machines it shouldn't be that hard

Don't understand why they haven't made a insert to replace that m10 thread? maybe i will find out when i take mine apart

Just need to find a way of removing the round neq 6 pro cover without damaging it, looks like like it's glued on

 

Thanks for the link wookie
