The MKE connectors; what am I doing wrong?
I just bought a pile of mallets from bens cycle; the new big mouth heads look great. The scooping opening is huge. But when I attach the mallet to the head, because the claws on the MKE connectors are so deep, the bolt sucks into the connector and deforms the head. The big mouth and hitting surface end up change shape in a way that I don't really like.
I because the heads are kind of thin, I don't feel comfortable countersinking the bottom hole; and I don't really think it would make a difference anyways. Anyone have a solution?
