Hey all, we've been constructing our practice field and we just put together the flag assembly. I don't know whether we bought the wrong fittings, but there's quite a bit of looseness between the outside of PVC axle and the inside of the + fitting that joins the vertical "flagpole" to the crank. Has anyone else encountered this issue, or did we just mess up? In fact, if this is indeed correct, it might be a stroke of luck, since this slop permits our current design to raise the flag from a range of directions. But we need to find out whether this is correct before we can finalize the height of the flag twister.
