Recliner and a couple hundred thousand. So today I'm going to do a follow-up. The repair that I did on the mechanical part is still holding up very well, there are no issues there. The framework itself is getting kind of kind of loose and wobbly, so we have to do some reinforcing there. The chair is nearing the end of its service life, but I'm going to see if we can extend it just a little bit further now most reclining chairs will have a removable back as this one does so I mean for taking it in and out of buildings. Upstairs and so forth, it makes it a lot easier.
So if you're struggling with that thing with the back on thinking about seeing whether you can remove it alright, here we go that okay, so back out of the way. So looking at the chair mechanism, and particularly the replacement bushing, that I fabricated from the PVC pipe fitting four and a half years later, it's still going strong. Some commenters on my original video felt that PVC was not a good wearing material to use for that bushing. But it's still going strong, still working well, there's you know no play or slop in it. It works smoothly and, as I said, the mechanism itself works very well.
The structure of the chair itself is getting pretty wobbly, so we'll get in there and see if we can strengthen up a bit to get some more mileage out of it. So, looking over things here, the angle brackets that I put in place the last time around have kept that part of the framework very sturdy, but looking in here see that there is a nut missing, there's a through bolt and supposed to be a nut on there.
It's gone still got a nut on this site, not gonna get in there to see it, but it's not very tight. So the first order of business is to put a new nut on there. So I don't have any nylock nuts, it's 1/4 inch by 20 standard sizes. I don't have any nylock nuts or lock washers, so I'm just going to put a little dab of blue Loctite down there. So that's the nut doesn't back off once we put it on feeling sturdy are all ready, so I'll tighten up the other side as well, I'm good and tight.
