While over here at Bodega Bay, I met a kite flyer that asked me a few questions, one was if any of my kites lower spreaders were extremely tight to insert intothe T, I looked at him with a question mark on my face and showed him some of mine, told him to bring it out and I would look at it this was the tightest I have ever come across, my question is that normal for this kite, we sanded the inside of the T so he was able to actually able to get it together
Not really normal but easily corrected with a drill motor, the right size drill bit and some reaming. Proceed one bit size increase at a time so not to over do it and create a sloppy fit. Can also use a 1/4" round file with sharp teeth. If this is your first time, take the spine out of the kite so the sail in not in peril!
