    Question Broken Half-Nut Lever?

    Hello crew, hope everyone is well.

    I am at the stage (in rebuild) of attaching the half-nut lever into the apron of my 9A, and having a bit of a time with it.
    I noticed that a very thin part of the casting was broken, but not sure that's my problem or not. I looked at a few for sale
    on EPay, and it looks like 3 of them all have the same broken area, but one doesn't.
    Maybe the factory chipped this thin wall out?

    Thought I'd check with those familiar with the half-nut lever for feedback. It sure looks broken to me.
    Thanks for your comments and suggestions as usual.

    PS: I just watched a Mr. Pete222 video and noticed the half-nut lever on an apron that he disassembled showed the same breakout,
    so maybe it's the way its supposed to be.

    2nd PS: Never mind; I got it figured out. Thanks anyway.

    Hmmm, when I went through my 16" apron I found a mysterious hunk of metal down in the muck. Related?

    I looked really hard for where it came from and had my apron completely apart but I never saw a place where it might have been. I forgot about it until i saw your pics. Your pictures are really well done BTW. Makes your posts nice to read.

    Sorry, I don't recognize that little chunk you found; could be anything I guess.
    I'm thinking the little piece of casting (on lever) was probably busted out at factory, probably during
    installation of the pin. And/or to prevent a shard from getting into the mechanism.

    Thanks for kind remark Kevin!
