Went to Home Depot today and found the turn-key clamps (yellow keys). I bought the 6 pack of various sizes and when I got home tried out the wenchette with the new clamp and oh man, all I can say is this thing provides some great clamping pressure!!
Matter of fact, for as long and as many times as I’ve tried using the wench correctly only now have I felt the “real” potential in the shaft the hanger can give.
Which leads me to a question. Since the turn-key clamp produces way more clamping pressure I noticed (for the first time) what felt like a bulge or hump of sorts mid-shaft or a little back toward the base.
I had the hanger cranked down pretty tight, more than what I was use to using the cable clamp, anyway, as I slowly tugged the hanger forward with my hand I felt the hanger kinda jump over this lump, hump…something???
Question is, was what I felt the actual internal structure inside my unit? Is this where the hanger should be attached to stress the internals? have I been missing something here??
Actually, I want to mention that as tight as the hanger was, the hanger jumped this hump thing (mid-shaft) and kind of hurt some, and scared the piss out of me but I thought, maybe this is what I’ve been missing in my hanging and having such trouble with head pressure at different times.
I hung 9 lbs with the hanger and new clamp but during the set the weight pulled the hanger toward the head causing the ol’ swelling to return in the head again.
So guys what do you all think? Does this sound like internal structure and where I need to place the hanger, or attach it more toward the head and rest on the shoulders of the bunched up skin above the head?
I’m just trying to make this clear to myself so hanging will be more effective. Previous problems probably due to inadequit (sp?) hanger tightness and possibly attachment point??
Appreciate any thoughts!
