Default Perlick groove questions.

Just recieved my perlicks the other day and noticed on 2 of them the "teeth" to line up with the shanks are a little different. 2 taps have double the grooves than the other 2. Is there a reason for this? I'm sure they will still work just fine, I haven't really tried to fit them together yet, just a dry fit. Is there something I should be doing special with either one of these?

never heard of that myself, do you have photos of the two different 'tooth' patterns?

I'm at work, see what I can do when I get home. On two of the taps, there is a tooth for every groove in the shank, and on two of them there is a gap, and looks like a tooth for every other groove.

as long as it fits I wouldnt think there's an issue. But it's odd that from the same order you have different groovings.

the two different teeth patterns. I am going to hopefully get these installed this weekend, if there is any time.

i've never seen that course pitch you have there. it will probably still work if the shank is double that pitch.

The shanks that I have would have a tooth in every groove of the finer, double toothed perlick. I guess the courser one will just skip every other groove. I was just asking as this is my first attempt, and was wondering if there was a reason for this.
