Bmax lowers (supposedly their own casting) have broken studs and almost fell off on several occasions on friends Fountain/Scism

Having that happen would tend to piss me off a bit. Sorry to hear of your troubles. Has this happened more than once to you? It could be a case of someone not using a torque wrench, and going with the German Method... Guud-en-tite.
