They are NOT engineered to be re-engineered by a non-engineer!
OK, I think your point has been made.
I was just pointing out that it was pried apart by the set screw... and that's a but ironic because if I've pinned the frame, I probably don't need that set screw to be tight... just the one on the side rail because that one keeps the rails from moving forward or backward.
And since nothing on that axis is drilled it's probably not going to fail the same way.
I guess the point here is to be aware of set screw pressure on pinned joints, for those who have pinned frames.
