    Hugi Compact? How old is this hub?

    If it is a used hub (not NOS) the indentations are probably from the cassette digging into the aluminum freehub body.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    yup.. i'll take a file, delicately, to it and tap the new cassette on it.
