Bar machining plug missing.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

The machining plug has fallen out the end of my 4ft MS880 bar. It's only been used a dozen times. What's the deal? I can imagine crap getting caught up whilst cutting, but it doesn't stay in if I push it back in.. Does it need fixing back in somehow or it's faulty? It's a big expensive bar to not be right after only a few uses. Or doesn't it matter?

 

Cheers.

Yep, that's it Ratman.

Well oddly enough, i have a few bars (not as long as yours by the sound of it, longest i have is a 20”) and some bars have holes in and some don’t, all mine are rollomatic E bars so just standard laminated bars. I’ve just googled it and apparently it seems the hole is used in manufacturing but then pressed back in afterwards. 🤷‍♂️ no idea or anything conclusive for ya really.
Someone with greater knowledge and better understanding on bars may be along shortly.
