MGF, Master Grumble Framer
- Aug 25, 2010
Haven't been on this site in a few years, just remembered I had it bookmarked in time for me to have a nice rant ready to blast that's related to framing. I'm chugging along getting four frames ready for someone who's in a rush to get them for a show, everything is going well with fitting the second to last one together until "CLICK." Fuuuuuuuuuuuuu. I pull the trigger to my flexi point fletcher again just to see if it will eject the point, sometimes I get lucky and it will spit it out at high velocity and clear out the chamber. No such luck. Ok, how about I remove the front block, sometimes the point ends up wonky and I can pry it out just by-of fer crying out loud. The "hammer" (the flat piece of metal that hits the point and sends it out) is slid back and there's no point to be found. This is the second time it's happened, and I had to pull the entire thing apart (with springs going everywhere) and it took forever to put it together (because springs like going everywhere but where they need to go) and it lasted one whole month. Gnnnar. Ok, well I'm pretty sure there's another fletcher laying around here somewhere, lemme just load it up and "click". Oh yeah, that one's broken too, that's why we bought the new one. That doesn't work well. Well let's look around, there must be something else, ah, another fletcher...That uses the silver points. And we're out because we switched to the flexi points because they used to be useful. Ok back to the job at hand, just needed to blow that off before I threw something. Like a fletcher.
