3385Re: A Filled Die
- Sep 2, 2003I guess I would also restrict the term "variety" to screw-ups that
involve the design. Otherwise a die manufacturing mistake such as
concentric lathe marks would also have to be termed a "variety".
Concentric lathe marks are present at installation, since the mis-
step that creates them occurs long before hubbing.
It's no big deal either way, as long as the nature of the
error/variety is made clear.
