Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Da-lite tripod screen that was having problems retracting so I decided to pop off one of the end caps to see what was going on. BAD IDEA! When I pulled the cap off, I could hear the internal spring mechanism spin the axle as it was release and now there is no tension in the retracting mechanism at all.
Is there a good way to rewind the spring after reassembly? There is a flat metal tab at the end of the axle that I can turn but it doesn't seem possible to do it by hand, and even if I got it tensioned, how do you get the cap (which has a slot to hold the tab in place) back on without releasing the tension?
We've had this problem once before and at the end of the whole story the supplier had to do it for us , because they use a machine to do this.
