Re: [cw_bugs] Mystery holes in Vibroplex Bases
- Bill,Holes in a bug base are "always" used for anchoring the key. There's no other practical reason for having a hole in a solid steel base.73, MiltIn a message dated 11/9/2011 11:39:42 AM Eastern Standard Time, fretjock@... writes:
I recently purchases a 1919 blue racer that had a 1/4 inch hole drilled into the base on the dash side of the pendulum at the level of the dot spring. I've seen several bugs on ebay with similar holes in the same location. The only thing I can imagine is that it was used to screw down the bug.
Has anyone ever noticed this before and have any information on their use?
