Are the legs supposed to angle outwards?
« on: November 02, 2016, 10:13:58 AM »

Are the legs on the 200/a supposed to angle outwards slightly like a rhodes or just straight 90 degrees? My Wurli has some sort of DIY leg hangers. Pictures don't seem to be helping much!

It's close to but not an exact 90 degrees.  There is a slight flare-out to help reduce side-to-side wobble.  You can see it in the leg flanges, where one side is raised higher than the other.  The legs are 100% straight.

The bottom picture of the 3 looks like it has "non-flared" leg plates, meaning that the legs are vertical.  Is that yours?

By my calculations, the leg plates flare 5°

Ahh thanks, now I look at the replacements I can see the angle. Now I just need to find some at a reasonable price

This isn't mine but it's the same angle, I don't like it!
