It was a "cost savings' thing. The earlier legs were threaded, but it was cheaper for the bottom line to just furnace braze in the plugs, instead of threading. Elinating 2 processes.|

I have 2 fork sliders here. At the top of both there are large threads to accept the springs. On one of the sliders the threaded part has a flat spot on eather side of the base to stick a wrench so that it can be removed. The other one however does not have the flat spots for a wrench. As far as I can see the threaded part can't come off. Why would the two be different?
