    Tooth question...

    I'm looking at TK 409's measurements, and it gives the height of each tooth but not the width of each tooth at the bottom of the visor?

    I'm layin' out my marks but I'm stuck without this....

    Re: Tooth question...

    I have a mystery helmet, and my measurements for both teeth match his. So, for what it's worth, here's what I measured for the width of each tooth base:

    Right: 9 mm
    Left: 8 mm

    REMEMBER: His diagram defines "right" and "left" with the helmet facing you. So what he indicates as "right" will be your left side if you were wearing the helmet.

    The bottoms of the face on either side of the visor...


    Edit: Thanks Jimmy

    Just trying to be consistent with TK-409's drawing set labels ... that's all.

    Sorry if that sounded arrogant, it wasn't meant to.
