Hi Jason - I dunno It's best to call your favoirite parts source - perhaps they will be reacting to demand. The parts received were in official packaging, which means that they are available for shipment to distributors at this time, which is a good thing.

Hi Jim - yes you do! You're welcome I'd put it off for a day, and then late last night when I should have been going to bed, and after having already sipped a couple of scotches, I got out the camera. It didn't turn out too bad

Very interesting, as the pictures show an exact copy of the VARIO control bridge that I have been using on my Logo for over a year.

Mikado probally now uses the same parts supplier as VARIO.

it definitely looks like an improvement, but i'm disappointed to see that those tiny little nuts are still being captured in the plastic. it's not hard to overtighten them a little, then they start spinning in their little recesses and there's nothing you can do. i know the solution is just to not overtighten them, but sometimes your attention slips and you make a mistake. would be better if it were idiot proof for guys like me who like to overtighten things .

Hi Brad,

FWIW, upon examining the photo you posted here:

.... I see a distinct difference in the plastic part - the brace that curves around the bend is not there. It is not an "EXACT copy". Also, there is no "trapping washer" nor a means of installing one with the supplied balls.

It's good to know this upgrade is now available.

Although I haven't had any more issues with my linkages since I installed the Vario Bridge that bjpaul suggested. I'm using it both in my Logo10 and 20.

Thanks for all the info Glen.
