      Hi,

      I’m intrigued by the fact that on my Weta (#103), the ends of the AMA arms are cut differently on port and starboard sides.

      Port side:

      Starboard side:

       

      What do the AMA arm ends look like on your Wetas? Can you send me pictures?

      Do the AMA arms normally come with end fittings?

      Cheers
      Pascal

            Hi Pascal

            All the ones I’ve seen have been cut off vertically. I wonder if a previous owner has cut them like that to make it easier to insert them.

            The only issue is that you can’t support the ends with an internal  ring (as Weta used originally) or the new fibreglass insert which is less prone to falling out since it has a larger surface area for glue.
