Re: Friction-Fence Locks

Played with the Sun 700 and had after about 15 minutes already the gates for W2 and W3 by feeling the turning resistance of the RCP. AWR and feeling for highest restance, then from there W3 around left.

Re: Friction-Fence Locks

This is now my officially last posting here for this year! Have a Happy New Year!

But now to the posting's content...

The right contact point is now always nicely revealing a gate, but the feeling of it makes the dialing quite fast. Because of the estimation of of the turning difficulty notes are quite enough and a graph not really possible.

Re: Friction-Fence Locks

Tested what happens on the Sun 700 when the gate of W3 is near the gate of the drive cam. As expected actually nothing, but it might get awkward to dial like all near gate numbers. Of course as it is not a friction fence lock it doesn't need a start to turn the fence to the gates.

Re: Friction-Fence Locks

Got yesterday a Satoh Sun Magnetic. It is not a friction fence locks, but as all my friction fence locks are still in the US, it is a substitute drug. The Magnetic is a direct entry fence lock in magic module format. The fence is pushed in by magnet, a bit by gravity (in VU) and I guess a lot by a spring inside the fence. The patent would be helpful, but I can't find it. The fence rides on the wheels, so there is no CP. Feeling the gates is also very difficult.

Re: Friction-Fence Locks

The Sun Magnetic seems like an interesting lock that I don't know much about beyond some vague pictures I've seen. Would be great if you'd start a thread on this one for us all! I'd love to hear more about your experience with it as well as some photos if/when you have the time. I'm very curious about this one.
