Re: Another K-60 Complaint
I do not have a K60 and do not know about the cord holding features,
but a number of years ago, I bought a commercial battery charger, and here are all the cords handing off the machine and no way to store them neatly or protective of the cords, so I took some flat iron and bent an pop rivited it to the machine on each side so there as a nice place to wrap the cords up slipped rubber hose over the ends so I had an insulated location to clip the clamps on when not in use and if the machine did get turned on no electrical shorts would occur,
any way the one local business would host a program from time to time, that would promote there battery chargers and welders, and a factory Representative would put on the demonstrations and discussions,
after one of the programs, I went up to and talked to the representative, and made the suggestion that they add the holder on the battery charger, and he respond that if they did that they would not be able to get UL approval on the machine.
still does not make sense to me, as to why,
but I do think he was telling me the truth, so some of the design or lack of design may not totally depend on what would be best or work well, but on what some regulating agency demands,
I do not know if that is the situation here, but I have wondered if some times the powers that be, are some times the major hindrance in some of the simple changes that would make things easyer or bettter.
