    I like it, nicely done. Nothing POS about it! I have one of a similar design but have no base area to mount it on to provide a stop for the spring "leg". My idler's been working ok, but chain stretch has it pretty sloppy and hate to go buy a larger sprocket.

    It was a more of PITA than POS. Just trying to figure out how to make it work. I had the idea, and it changed a couple times. Took all day for me to figure out how make it work correctly.

    I had to add a base area for the spring "leg" to make it all work.

    I am happy with it so far.
