Hi friends,

after I was first informed on my astonished enquiry that my already well-known SW friend Mitchell Jetten from the Track shoes story would answer me, now came this joke message ... Awesome!!!



This reinforces my impression of SW, that's an case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand's doing ...

Hello everybody,

after my friend Joe had uploaded the upright-standing Sprocket, to see how the Support wax is distributed at this printing orientation, I have ordered both variants (FUD and FXD).

And this is the distribution of the Support Material which shows that the wheel is quite bizarre wrapped in wax,

which is why I think that the flat printing orientation might even be more favourable.

Since at least the top side does not come in contact with the wax, it would remain smooth, and the rougher underside of the wheels would hardly be visible between the truck chains from the outside anyway.

And then I tried the same trick from the Track shoe story again and ordered the sprocket once again in a flat printing orientation come hell or high water, in the hope that this time it might just as well come through the control like the criticized Track Shoe Set in those days, whereby this flat lying sprocket now, strangely enough, is only still offered in FXD.
Now I'm curious how the story ends this time, so keep your fingers crossed!
