I was thinking how unlucky I was when the frame of my 525 broke last year. I never thought anymore about it. I used an epoxy and glued it up and it works fine. Then I noticed Jellyworm post about his broken cage. Looking at the pics it went in an identical spot to mine. The only difference was I hadnt dropped mine. I recently bought another second hand 525 in immaculate condition. Probably never used. After a couple of sessions use I have examined it. The cage is cracked. Under closer inspection the crack is right where the small screw comes through (The one that fitted under the sideplate rim. Am I unlucky or does this appear to be a design fault with the cage ? Is your break in the same place Dave ??
