    I will not be one of the guinea pigs to find out. I wonder how established that finding is?

    The link was published in 1976, not something I would bet my health on. I hope it is correct since I...

    Would not faulty power be measurable? Or is the phase converter just a standard thing to blame when you don't want to deal with the problem?

    I vote it's a defective collet, the slots are too long so they don't give the support needed to connect the segments. Mine don't extend onto the face like the one you show, they end in the 30 degree...
