My 1220 shifter has been a problem for me since I picked it up. It was so loose that it would move up and out of the grooves of the shift rods. Part of my job is building maintenance so I figured I must have something I can use as raw material to fix this ...

Searching through my inventory I found a door knob rose (rosette). The shape was perfect, just a bit smaller than the top ring, and it was brass! I trimmed it so that all that was left was the center section and I put it between the shifter and the top ring. The shifter now moves smoothly and it has no play. :dancingbanana:

I'll be testing it out tomorrow when I deal with the big storm we have coming.

I'll post a picture later, but it's pretty simple.

There is nothing better or more satisfying than a home brew repair job that works and cost nothing but a little time.
