With apologies for resuscitating a long-dead thread, I was wondering if the summary test data referred to in Michaellane's post above is around anyplace.

I'm interested in general; but in particular, I'm interested in the paragraph that said:

"One interesting thing we noted was how important "setting" the piece was. A simple tug on the gear before it's loaded made a difference in whether the gear held or popped. Even some compromised placements that were spit out when we didn't "set" the piece held fast when the gear was "set" prior to the load."

The topic of "setting" cams came up in a thread on another forum, and this is an attempt to follow-up on the questions raised there. If there's actual test information available on this point, I'd be quite interested, and I bet I'm not alone.

Thanks in advance for any response!
