Subject:	ETX 105 Dec Locl

From:	Don Sutherland (
Olivier Cioni was asking about the thread size for the dec. lock for his
ETX-105. The screw thread is 10-24 (number 10, 24 TPI).

When I was adjusting the backlash in the dec. drive, I used a 10-24
screw and nut to replace the dec. lock knob and gain access to the
adjuster nut on the worm gear shaft.
I hope this helps,
Don Sutherland

I don't find the size of screw that are used on my ETX105 to block the
declination disc. Do you know this value ?

Thanks for your help

Mike here: Can you be more specific? I'm not certain what you mean by "block". But I don't have the size anyway. But I might be able to find out.


Yes, in fact, I search the size of the screw used to fix the declination
disc. Maybe I can send you a photo of the screw. On your site, I don t
found this value, I think.

Thank you!
