*Brass frames with limited verdigris patina (finish may vary)
*24 carat gold plated parts and engine cover
*DK thumbscrew, new armature bar and updated running wheel for improved performance
*The renowned rotary liner. Effortlessly sinks any size line just by rubbing against the skin.
*The motor is the same as the Sidewinder V2-V4, which has stood the test of time. It is a long-time favourite of Sidewinder collectors.
*Vice-Lock that tightens easily on almost any pipe
*Great for all varieties of in-line work or as a quick shader/packer
*Adjustment mark on cam and frame to adjust the impact screw (Same as V5 and V6)
*Numbered stroke disc so you can easily play with the stroke without fear of losing that sweet spot. You can't make it too long or too short.
*For Standard Rod Needle: wrap a thick rubber band around the motor cover and across the front of the machine to add tension to the needle bar. It is recommended to use thick rubber bands and Dan's perfect nipples
*With Cartridges: Wrap a rubber band around the motor cover and over the top of the needle bar to counteract the tension of the cartridge upwards. Both thick and standard rubbers work, it will just depend on the tension of the cartridge membrane or rubber to determine which rubber provides the right counter resistance
"It is now one year into our cooperative effort with the V3R. Based on what I have learned this past year, and what my customers have expressed, I have made some updates to the V3R. First, you will now have the coveted DK thumbscrew! Secondly, I've placed the most crucial and misunderstood adjustment item, the impact screw, on the front. Accompanied by a hardened steel impact pin, the machine will be easier to readjust, and will keep its tuning much longer. For the A-bar, I used some tricks from the V7 to reduce splash and make it hit a little stiffer at the lower end. I also added the backing springs as well to prevent spring breakage.
These updates are in addition to the updated 2019 version which still has the same reliable and proven geometry as the original v3, but now revised and remastered with subtle differences to improve overall performance. This is the most user-friendly Sidewinder yet. The differences, apart from aesthetics, is the numbered race wheel, an impact screw timing mark on the cam and frame (like the v5-6). In addition, I made a new spring-loaded screw-lock configuration that effortlessly holds your tube. The race wheel is indexed to 10 positions, and numbered accordingly.
Thanks. Dan ".
