Somebody was mentioning using some solvent on the powdercoat, I don't recall who but you can search it.

I use a hardened dremel burr and back off when you see the smallest spark. Then, clean up with emery paper.

Alright it looks like a Dremel burr tip to the powdercoated area of the small frame tube. Not the DT clamp where it mates with the tube.

Simply clamped the DT headsteady clamp tight to the small tube overtop of the powdercoat paint. It's tight and I think it will not move , even though there is a gap where the 2 pieces don't quite touch together. A lovely mechanism. On another subject.. Ordered in Smiths Electronic instruments today after 2 wks. of searching for my originals. Removed them for protection whilst winching stripped -down bike upstairs for the engine rebuild. It's like hiding a key somewhere so no one else finds it. Painkillers and a useless leg were likely factors. Should I get plates and screws out the new issue. No money involved here in Canada , infection my worry.

It will shake itself loose in due time. The crushed powdercoat will yield to the vibration.
