      I ordered two new contact points and the contact screws from Vibroplex, even though Vibroplex recommends purchase of the entire assembly. I thought I would try purchasing only the contacts . The old contacts would snap right into the contact screw. Not so easy with the new contacts. Think a special type tool is needed.

      Anyone have a method of attaching the new contact to the contact screw after the screw is inserted in the post? This is for the dot contact post.

      By the way, I orderd a the two contacts, contact screws and another weight from Vibroplex via a FAX order and Vibroplex shipped immediately. Lots of parts are available with excellent service.

      Tnx John N3WT
