It was a brand new custom Atrim and one of the prettiest I've seen. It looked like GIJoe took a bite out of the blade.
I usually avoid metal fasteners in that region of the stand for this reason, as I've seen the same happen several times! Deeply set screws are a pretty safe bet, otherwise I prefer just pegged in place, which also makes it easy to break down for transport (or can be glued as well if permanent).
Yep, I pegged this one. I have to make a new deck 3/4" thick so it isn't as flexible and I'll peg that one too.
