Corrosion on calibration lugs

Postby jecarroll » Sun Feb 17, 2013 1:14 am

Hi,
I have had my Mandala for about a month now and am noticing a fair bit of corrosion on the allen key calibration screws. Has anyone else experienced this? Found it a bit odd that they wouldn't be stainless. It does rub off, but is leaving some pitting. Solutions?

Thanks
Jesse

I know with something that new you should not have to worry about corrosion, but could you just swap them out for stainless? It should not cost too much.

Probably could just get stainless ones. Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen. Would have thought on such a high quality device they would use the stainless fittings.

Do you live near the ocean? Salt air can corrode metal fast!
