Re: Loose forearm barrel loop question
Short answer, no. The print shows it to be a 7-24 thread, very unusual and most likely shop made. Also not sure how long that practice was used to hold the loop while soldering. If both the bottom long rib and short rib are secured, soldering would still be in the same place, unfortunately when the loop is loose most times the rib comes loose also.
