Delay adjusting tool (ProDAT) Recall Alert

Loki Research's Jeff Taylor has issued the following notice:-

It has come to my attention that some ProDAT delay adjusting tools sold in 2007 and 2008 are defective.

The problem is that the drill bit is set into the handle at the wrong height (too high). The result is that the delays are drilled deeper than expected and the delay times are too short by as much as five seconds. This can be catastrophic! Please check any ProDATs that you have and contact me if you find bad ones. The correct overall length to the tip of the drill bit is 1.675", the bad ones that I have seen are in the 1.8" to 1.82" range.
See http://www.lokiresearch.com/ProDAT.asp for a drawing.

I will replace any bad tools, regardless of where you bought them.

-Jeff
