Nope, the damper flares out at a point limiting how far you can slide it.I don't have a bitubo damper but you should be able to slide the body in the clamp to center it in the travel.
That's good info for those of us who don't own a mill...Nope, the damper flares out at a point limiting how far you can slide it.
It was probably just about 1/4 in short, i could see the mounting arm flex as it went to full lock.
I just put the mounting clamp into the mill and machined it. Now the damper has an even clearance at each end of its travel and no binding.
Was going to send it back if other people had this issue, but this was quicker and i do like the dampener itself.
Thanks minuteman that does help. Mine looked like that with the adjustment knob bottomed out but then the bars could be turned another degree or so.Mine went in OK but I left all the bolts loose until I had it lined up. Sorry for the crap cell phone pics but it may help.
