I mentioned that in the first post, is it so hard to update a one page instruction sheet. As I said the local Ace had a performer so I went down and took a picture and looked up a manual from the newer Performers which showed it correctly and Timothy verifed it with his new performer.I wish that diagram was in the paper instructions that came with my kit. Mine showed the previous generation bail for some reason. Not a big issue, it was easy enough to reorient it.
Chad my guess is it adds some strength to the piece against the bowl, the original had 2 pieces also.
