Meek 3 & 4 Crank collar

Post by Reelman2 »

I do not at present have a Meek #4, but can someone tell me if the collar that the screw goes through to hold on the handle of a #3 is the same size as on a #4.

I was sure they were not going to be the same, but I mic'd several B.F. Meek & Sons and also Bluegrass, and they are all the same, both #3 and #4 come to around .440 to .445 inches.
