    I had an interesting and very basic question
    asked of me which I cannot answer. Given that
    John's Permacomb is shorter than a medium frame,
    but taller than a shallow frame, how does one fit
    this unique "frame" into a radial extractor?

    Looking at my extractors, I'd need to fabricate
    a ring with a smaller diameter than the notched
    ring in which each frame sits, and somehow
    attach it to the existing "cage" (the one that
    spins).

    How have others addressed this challenge?

    I just put it in my 9 frame radial from Brushy Mtn and spin [img]smile.gif[/img]

    No modifications were necessary.

    FWI, my extractor had been modified to accomodate the larger end bars on all plastic frames (non permacomb), but I don't think permacomb requires this mod.

    I have used them in my Kelly 9 frame without any problems.

    The PermaComb worked fine in my Mann Lake 9/18. The inner ring on mine is made for a shallow or larger and that works for deeps, mediums, shallows and PermaComb.

    I didn't need to do anything special for my Brushy Mt. 9-18. Just plop them in and slowly start up until it sounds like a Lear during an engine test.
