    Last night I was swapping out my cassette and in the process stripped the threads in the driver body. I pulled the driver off this morning to get ready to swap it out and found a crack running from one of the pawls to about the middle of the driver body. Thank god for screw ups and forgetting to grab the torque wrench......sometimes. Lol

    Wowtch! Good catch! Sometimes there is a reason for failure and discovery.

    Man on LSD Saves Dog From Imaginary Fire: Police
    3AC2E26E-1FEF-454F-86B9-3232F395F693.jpeg

    An upstate New York man apparently high on hallucinogens broke into his neighbor's home to save their dog from what he thought was a burning home, police say.

    There was no fire, state police told WNYT-TV. The man had consumed LSD and cough medicine and thought his neighbor's home in Saratoga County was being consumed by flames last Thursday, officials say.

    He went around his Halfmoon neighborhood banging on doors and yelling about a fire, WNYT reported. When no one would help, he drove his black BMW sedan through his neighbor's fence, went to the back door and smashed through it to retrieve the dog.

    He emerged triumphantly with the large white dog, and responding officers found him standing outside the home with the dog in his arms, police said.

    "He believed that the residence was on fire and he was rescuing the dog," State Police Troop G spokesman Mark Cepiel said.

    The man, 43-year-old Michael Orchard, was arrested on charges of burglary and criminal mischief. He was jailed on $15,000 bail.

    Seriously, this guy should get a key to the city for his dedication to public safety.

    When no one would help, he drove his black BMW sedan through his neighbor's fence, went to the back door and smashed through it to retrieve the dog.

    He emerged triumphantly with the large white dog, and responding officers found him standing outside the home with the dog in his arms, police said.”

    I was putting on an SLX 11-46 cassette, swapping from an SLX 11-42. Only way I caught the crack is because I boogered up the threads when I tried to install the cassette lock ring. I removed the driver to install the new one and saw the crack. Really had nothing to do with the cassette, more so the driver body and pawl mounts.

    In the second pic, the crack is at the 11 o’clock position right next to the pawl.

    By the way, LSD dog saver story is awesome!!!

    LSD always seemed to put me at the edge of sanity, a little too close, actually.
    Now magic mushrooms...they'll have you talking to God, and listening to his casual reply.
