Two SOS suspensions for the ETMs were disassembled and packed for cleaning and baking by Bob.
These suspensions have been stored on the X end flow bench long years, and looked quite old.
They have some differences to the modern SOSs.
- The top suspension block is made of aluminum and had dog clamps to fix the wires.
- The side bars are not symmetric: the side OSEM can only be fixed at the right bar (left side in the picture).
- EQ stops were made of Viton.
- One of the tower bases seems to have finger prints (of Mike Zucker?).
I found that the OSEM plates had no play. We know that the arrangement of the OSEMs gets quite difficult
in this situation. Therefore the holes of the screws were drilled with the larger drill.
We decided to replace all of the screws to the new ones as all of the screws are Ag plated and got corroded
by silver sulfide (Ag2S). I checked our stock in the clean room. We have enough screws.
