Personally I don't care if I have to do some fitting. I just want to get on with it. I have seen what manufacturers say about drop in parts for guns. Well it's not as simple as drop and go, most times you have to alter or at least fit the part to that particulate gun.

It takes time to make parts that are every thing fits all, and time is money..............................Joe

Yup! Iím with you on this one Joe.
I have 112hís with double dogs, trying to cover the spring on those is easier said than done.
I would not mind doing a little grinding, it actually only takes a couple of minutes, especially now that Iíve found where it was hitting.

I would rather refit the dogs if it is a matter of shortening the original dogs. It's easier to file or grind the dogs a little then dremeling out the plates. Or even make different dogs for the 112h. It shouldn't cost any more then the jigmaster bridges which had to be designed from scratch. They are going to have to make the plate anyhow so putting the pins in a different location will involve the same amount of time & material as when they manufactured the jigmaster bridge. As I said I would rather have a drop in bridge with minor fitting. I'm in if a little filing is needed but I'm out if I have to cutout the sideplates. Interchangeability is the name of the game for more sales. JMO

It looks like the plate work is alot less than double dogging on the bridge screws.  It understandable that alan is hesitant to put a product out there that isnt a drop in.  There will always be the guys that will complain if it doesn't work without tweaking.  There are far fewer 112Hs then Jiggies and the development cost may not be worth it. 

I've wanted yoke and eccentric plates for squidder, surfmasters so I sent out for a few bids on hardened stainless parts 200  quantity each.  The cost with samples, QC and customs was crazy.  So I appreciate Alan's investment in bringing after market parts to market for us to pimp our reels out.

Having said that I would still take two and do the plate work.

I was going to stamp out the plate, but it has to be around 1000 pieces, and it is not worth it. So, the alternative processing will be machine cut. The cost will be higher. It will be around $49.00 each.

Let see who would like to order it I will need the payment up front before I confirm this item is a go.

Let me know.

I'm still in for 2 either way. If I have to carve the sideplate, so be it. The modification will be on the inside, so I'm the only one that will see it.

I'm really getting into this whole hot-rodding gig and am having a blast challenging myself in new ways...

Thanks again for creating these really awesome products!
