oldjoe, sorry to hear about what happened to your T - a huge disappointment I'm sure for you, for Rockwell, and for all backers who've received or will be receiving the 2-piece design. As explained in the April Update (May 4) on KS (that is annoyingly marked 'For backers only'), the 2 pieces (T-bar head and rod) are press fitted together. Two images of the pieces and how they fit together were posted in that update but I can't hotlink the images due to my KS sign-in key being required for you to view them so I've uploaded them to imgur. The 2 photos I'm talking about are this one and this one. [EDIT: links fixed - sorry!] As the T was designed to be able to be completely disassembled (see this post), Rockwell should be able to send you a replacement 1-piece once they have them and once you've disassembled yours, it should just drop right in. The ability to self service was a great design decision!
