    I wondering if anyone can tell me how to adjust the tension for the articulating arm on an old Mac The original flat panel that looked kind of like R2D2?
    Cant seem to keep itself up anymore tried tightening the hinges a bit with a dual pair of needle nose pliers.. Is there a spring inside? Or perhaps second tension setting

    'My arm is tired" and "cant seem to keep itself up " gave me a dirty giggle.

    Bushings

    There is a repair kit that replaces the worn bushings that hold tension to keep it up. Been a while but I'm sure resellers might have it

    Why's your arm tired? Just what have you been doing?! Don't keep at it too long or you'll go blind ;)

    If your arm is tired, then you should take some relaxation time.

    Sorry, I just had to say it.
