Really? Did you ever read the original thread and find out the OP posted the same pics in another forum and was told the burr was normal and that the base scratch was negligible to performance? Mount it one time and see what the base looks like. It gets like that everytime you mount and dismount it and will gain more nicks the more you remove and install it. Also, EK replaced his block anyway.
As for RedRaider forums, I don't need to read it, since I'm a member there and was a contributor to fund the copper and nickel testing done. Do you know what the results were and the conclusion we came up with, because the thickness of the nickel plating exceeded EKs claimed spec and the copper was shown to be the quality EK said it was made of. Ever wonder why Eddy switched the Nickel plating process? If you know what was discussed over on RRTech, you would know why.

You like Koolance, but RRTech doesn't agree with that companies products either and there's threads on their garbage screw ups too, yet you post RRtech threads on EK products.Edited by ezveedub - 8/14/11 at 6:47am
