I saw what appears to be a composite assembly using threaded fasteners so I intended to check it out.
My plan is to disassemble, compare the spars for irregularities, and check the rim without influencing support structure. Then compare eccentricity of rim, assembled and assembled to determine cause and location. Assess serviceability.
Nils: the spars are not perpendicular to the rim. That would make for an unsupported structure at its intended service loading.
Dave: the fasteners aren't conventional, hence my question about what they're called.
Now, with my glasses on, a close inspection appears to indicate fasteners are one way use.
It does sound problematic at this point so I'm pursuing alternative options. I'll post if I discover something.
Thanks for the interest.
