Much needed T2 mod
« on: December 09, 2017, 06:54 pm »
one of my only criticism of my excellent T2 is the volume control button is far to easily altered by accidently brushing against it  I have seen this aftermarket knob but don't think its available here in the UK sadly ?

Doesn't happen to me when i'm using mine. Why !!!  I'm left handed which puts the control button on the offside.  :)

Or you can pull the knob off & fit a fibre washer underneath, pop the knob back on & the extra friction will stop any movement, an old Arado trick from 30+yrs ago, O rings sometimes will do it.

That's strange, it's usually the other way around.  Us lefties usually find certain design elements are more of a pain for us.

I think that was a one off printed jobbie, if you could find someone with a 3D printer you may be in luck.

That's right Keith. It's also difficult demonstrating an assembly (for example) to right handers as they have to reverse the technique.

Q "That's right Keith. It's also difficult demonstrating an assembly (for example) to right handers as they have to reverse the technique" UQ

When I wore a side bag on videos I often got asked where people could get the bag. It had a handy design for having the pointer and digging tool outside the bag right at the front with easy access.  I always made sure that I advised people that I swung left handed, and if you swing right handed with the bag on your left side, the pointer and digger will have to go at the back so much harder to reach!
