Hello, working through the bugs on a new install. When rotating my dome, the dome is scratching across the top of some of the posts. The wheel isn't holding the dome high enough.
Should I cut the posts shorter, or if I need to loosen and adjust the walls or the dome, what should I be looking for as reference points? Finding this is definitely a problem where the shutter cross brace is, but also in a couple of other dome segment seams.
I've already measured and adjusted for wall circularity, but I'm not anchored down yet.. figuring rotation fixes take priority. And no holes were re-drilled.
Thanks Steven. There were 3 of the 7 posts that were shaving the dome. But all fixed now. I too, am baffled, but an epiphany comes now and then.😂
I see what you did. So it was only this one post that was too high? Well it looks like you fixed it, but unless that post was out of spec and too tall or there was something below it, I'm baffled.
glad it's fixed.
This is a post trimmed with an oscillating tool. It was a rough cut as I didn’t want to dismantle. But if you can imagine the tube sitting about 3/8 “ higher, it was scratching along the bottom of the dome. I found 3 tubes like this that needed trimming down.
interestingly when I painted the tubes I had them all aligned and they were same length. I did not specifically verify the holes were all same, but I don’t remember them being far out.
so perhaps this points to holes being different on the walls, or, it was me.
but I have a hard time with that as I was careful to install the tubes right way up, and I have verified the bottom hole location is same on all
so I don’t know. But cutting the posts has made the difference.
This does not make any sense to me. I don't know how that would happen since the wheels are mounted to the top of the posts and if installed properly the wheel should be higher than the post. Pictures please.
