    Not just you. The DN was too annoying, so I traded it in for a SN, which has the same problem, just less of it. Ridgeline helped, but the SN doesn't make it as an overnight sleeper. Naps OK.

    I dunno. Gap = .005" all around seems to lack enough tolerance to be practical. Maybe polishing down the OD of the 3/4" EMT would help. Rust would become an issue.
