+ did anyone figure out the best way to put the whole take-up-spool / o-ring / axle floppy assembly thing back in the feeder body? We managed to fiddle these back in in the end, but I wouldn't call it a technique :)
I made up this hook out of heavy steel wire, so you can assemble with the spring bar at an angle, inside the side cheeks, then pull it out and rotate to the right position

>>+ was this a later version of feeder? Are the holes in the front part of an alternative or custom fixing method?

The Qplacers I just got use the side-lock thing. They're push (the feeder into the machine) to lock, push to unlock (except that one machine has a feeder irretrievably jammed in!)
There's an insert that goes into the hole you have there, looks kind of like a Dzus fastener.

I think you might have hit 'admin modify' rather than 'reply'. Any way to restore the original post?
