Platinum 3776 Converter Rattling

Hello,

 

Is it normal for the Platinum converter to rattle when you shake it lightly? I think the metal part of the converter is hitting the inside of the barrel and causing the noise.

I have 3.

 

All do rattle.

 

I think it is the turning knob that rattles on them.

I agree with the comment above.  The converter's turning knob has some play in it so that it does rattle.  However, the rattle can be stopped, at least for a while, if one turns the knob slightly in either direction so that it engages the piston rod.  I imagine that the rattle is just a nice idiosyncrasy of this type of Platinum converter.  That is, a quirk to enjoy.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
