[EDIT] @Litenbror - I get that used in areas of the machinery that don't directly contact food it would be fine, but just a bit of a misnomer otherwise.

Agreed not something you want to put.on your sausage at bunnings.

You will actually find almost all of our food safety regulations are pretty average. Most chemicals that are put in foods go through fairly quick assessments with very little long term exposure tests. Also there is a fair bit usage beyond a chemicals original testing specs so if this stuff has you worried time to go off processed foods entirely.

On the topic of installing new bearings. To avoid them getting stuck am I better using a thin layer of grease on the outside of the bearing and the linkage or anti seize (I have a food safe anti seize with PTFE from a previous project).
Waterproof greases seem to last longer than food grade antifreeze from my own personal experience, I used to service lifting equipment in abattoirs.

Levin the moment
Aeons ago, on ye olde 3x10 26".. swapped the big 42 tooth for a bash ring, but can't remember if chain was shortened at that time..

now, in Small-Small (24-11) gear chain was almost touching itself, and in Big(middle)-Big(32-36), rear derailleur was fairly vertical..
always seemed a bit too slap-happy...

so today took out 2 side plates... resulting pics below

QQ-TLDR: did i fix it or fk it? :rolleyes: one link too many?

Looks OK, mine which still has the 42 is about the same on big-big and is fine. Wouldn't go any shorter though.
