Hope that helps!
I'm surprised. I've used Stuller for decades and love the quality of
their findings. They offer different weights of findings in some of
their most often used parts, but I always use the heaviest they
Did you by chance order a light weight setting or was there a mix up
at the factory?
How about drilling a small hole in the cup bezel at the point where
it'll make contact with the flat sheet.
