Hope the pictures help Pete,
The springs I have are too big, they are to show how it should look all together.

Just have a look at the drilled holes in the centre example, what a it should never have gotten past the Wa.pruf

Default Ice Cleat Pins


Thanks Ian, great help.

Your right, I did have a closer look at my two springs and there are pins still in there. I have now placed the springs back into my de-rusting tub (filled with Vinegar) and will see what transpires.

If the old pins are still ok then I will use them – if not then I will replace those as well.

Interesting to see on your photos that the two sets of pins are of a different length.

You say the you have "done three..two more to do" - are they all Tiger ones?

Kind regards,
Pete.

Hi Pete, and fellow collectors.
How's the vinegar bath have the original pins made it safely ?.
You're quite correct, even though one pair is bent..there are different lengths.
I do wonder how long they would have stayed locked onto the track link..they're doing a big supporting job..with not much to hold them in place.
I'm embarrassed to say..yes..I have 5 tiger-1 examples
Best regards, Ian "feind-hort-mit"
