  1. Only the side plates remain. 
  2. Lobes are sold Busted BD cams for your use for everything but climbing! Christmas tree ornaments, key chains, cabinet pull handles for your van or other random art projects. Will disassemble them if you want a lobe or side plate.

 

$10 a cam or $3 for an individual lobe

Those look better than what is on my rack!  Busted how?  Just triggers or more structural.  If just cables I'll take them all.

Did you cut those trigger wires to decommission those cams?!

Firestone · · California · Joined Nov 2015 · Points: 443

Haneous...I'll take all four...for climbing of course

Bought them cause they looked good, I don’t know the story but I assume they were used once then put in a wet environment for 20 years. Heavy rusting, the trigger wires rusted completely through and on the axles where it’s peened at the side plate. Axles rotate in the plate rather than the lobe on the axle. The scariest thing is the zinc plated copper swages eating the through the aluminum on the lobe like a sacrificial anode.

Woah! That's actually awesome (and scary)

What’s left of one trigger wire. And the peened axle

Would be interesting to see some pull testing on those bad boys!

Yikes!  Nothing like a sacrificial anode scar to keep the pucker factor high.... Christmas ornaments is a great idea.  Survey says don't climb on these.  thanks for the additional pics

They’d probably pull fairly strong. It’s the real world scenario that could rip off the side plate and explode the cam. I did re trigger the 3.5 to use backing up the tipped out 3 in that in between size of c4 3 and 4

Looks like they were used for spelunking into some sort of acid cave.

PM sent.

I'll donate 10 bucks to have these cams pulled tested. The lobes can probably still be used as ornaments afterwards

Jess Arnold · · Minneapolis, MN · Joined Jan 2017 · Points: 297

Are any of the lobes left? 


KyleK2 · · Phx/Flg AZ · Joined Jan 2011 · Points: 115

Lobes are all sold.  Just side plates and stems left.  I’m assuming no one wants those. 

Andrew Krajnik · · Plainfield, IL · Joined Jul 2016 · Points: 324

All of them? Damn, that was fast.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
