Bowl vent overlaps leg socket?
« on: June 05, 2019, 06:06:03 PM »
Picked up a lime 18.5 today.  Upon closer inspection, it looks like either the leg socket guy or the bowl vent guy had a bad day on the assembly line.  The bowl vents are off-center from the leg sockets (or perhaps it's the leg sockets that are off-center from the bowl vents).  It's off enough that one of the bowl vents actually sits on top of one of the leg socket tabs. 

Anyone ever seen this before?

Most likely manufactured on a Monday or Friday the two work days when nobody gives a fuk.

Hungover and mad at the world Monday's and who cares on Friday let's get the weekend started turn and burn that shite.

With the legs on it does it not level? I'd imagine of the leg sockets were off that the rim would be tilted.

Looks to me like the legs are good to the handles and it's the vents that are off. Pretty sweet!

The lid vent on my 22 WW rubs against the foot of the handle strap.  It actually looks like part of the foot was ground away to let the vent spin.  That lime is way out of spec.
