1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Marcello, isn't ergal an Italian aluminum alloy? My first introduction to ergal was with black anodized, Italian, Campagnolo Nuovo Super Record, high end road racing bicycle derailleurs and components back in the '70's. Tom Stephens

    Are the locking lugs for the TM series and the MX series the same?

    Ergal is aluminum 7075 and mostly use for aviation application. It's also used to make M16 rifle.
    Tom you're right,Campagnolo uses a lot of ergal for their products.
    The TM lock is completly different from MX series. I will make them in ergal very soon.
    The cost of the TM lock is $ 90.00 USD including shipping

    That's the first thing that I asked to my friend. His answer was very simple: you change the locking block because it wears off but it's not right ecause the wear is on the barrel and for that reason you put a bigger block until you must work on the barrel and they will cost a lot of money.
    Instead in ergal is the block that gets the wear.
