    Hey peeps, i have no idea if this is the right board to ask about help with this, but i might as well give it a shot.

    anyways, my MP DVD Prime came with a broken/loose left leg, and up until recently i gathered the courage to unassemble him and figure out what is wrong. so, essentially, i made a little gallery to try and take the best pics i could (a.k.a. crappy phone camera). i believe that either the spring coil that makes the pressure so both parts of the ratchet joint stay snuggle tight is messed up and/or the pin isn't holding the whole thing strongly enough (because it can't make it all the way down because of the spring itself), i've thought about maybe cutting a little loop or 2 on the spring or trying to get a longer screw with about the same thickness and try to screw the thing up (no pun intended). anyways, the gallery is here:

    any help from the pros (a.k.a. you all) is much appreciated.

    worse case scenario, i'll buy the MP prime with trailer :(
