Hi all, in this auction the seller states that one of the adjusters is by OMAS, I have never heard of such items made by OMAS, I checked my catalog, that Chuck produces, and its not listed there, anyone out there heard of these?

OMAS made a piece that replaced the adjuster. It was an unthreaded aluminum piece that fit in the upper hole on the brake caliper to receive the brake housing.

I never saw a threaded OMAS one like shown in the auction (I'm not convinced it is OMAS): http://i12.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/f6/7d/93_1_b.JPG

Before I found the OMAS piece I used to take the stock Campagnolo steel adjuster, remove the thumb wheel and shorten the shaft to about 1/8" long. I did this since it was so easy to adjust the brake shoe clearance by loosing the cable pinch bolt with the T-wrench, squeezing the caliper together by hand and then retightening the pinch bolt. Gave the caliper a much cleaner look in my opinion.
