My Darwin's neck broke a while ago--my mom and I fixed him, took him apart, replaced the steel cable with Kevlar, put him back together. Voila, he worked, for a little bit. The Kevlar gave, of course.
So I've got a few more questions before I decide to try and fix him again: is there a better material to use than the original steel cable he came with? What will last longer, has anyone tried anything?
SECOND question: what is the exact length the cable in his neck needs to be? I can figure this out with trial and error--run him, see if the cable has too much give, re-adjust it, run him again--but it would be a lot better if someone could tell me, if they happened to know offhand.
Thank you so much in advance!
