I had not taken the time to clean out the fender slot, so it was riding high.  I saw it in my rearview mirror and maybe heard the racket when it went cartwheeling into the air.  Maybe the wheel ran over it?  Anyway it took some serious "blacksmithing" to kinda make it fit again.   :-\

Note to self:  (Always clean the fender slot and connect the bungee.)

Once I got to a job and a fender was missing.  An hour or so later the customer's wife came back with Dunkin Donuts for everyone and also a fender for me.  She said it sort of looked like my mill so she picked it up. It was fairly mangled which so that was a sideways compliment,  but it went back on ok anyway.

What's this bungee you speak of Lynn?

Guess I've just been lucky, never used a bungee, never lost a fender!

     My original fenders had one rubber bungee to hold 'em in place.  the new ones have two. (Yeah...  I've had a couple of "incidents.")
     I will say that a blowout at 70 mph will make your fender do bad and wondrous things, and you won't like the results. :(  That bungee cord wasn't no more than spit on a housefire.

Had a blowout when I was on the way home from buying my mill.  The fender took a direct hit.  I persuaded it back to it's near original form.

Mine originally had ball bearing loaded pins, but moisture and rust was never kind to them, plus they had a sneaky way of hiding.  The black bungee works fine and I have the hook on the fender end bent to prevent it's escape.

Maybe I should make provisions for securing my fenders with a little more than gravity!

But you're right, if you don't get the fender pockets cleaned out, that shortens the security of the fender!
