    Default Wells Index 845 mill clutch adjustment

    Having issues getting the clutch adjusted om my mill. Played with the large adjustment nut on the backside and the allen screw adjustment on the front. Seems like I can either get it to engage or not engage but not both. Sure I must be missing something and the manual is clear as mud. Anybody know the procedure let me know please.

    I remember having issues, but don't remember how I resolved them.

    I know that I spent a lot of time cleaning it. And I don't usually like to clean stuff like that unless I absolutely have to.

    We are talking about the boring feed clutch right?

    Yes, attached a couple of photos. I just completely went thru the whole mill, all new bearings, cleaned and reassembled the feed gear sets. Figured it's a clutch, how difficult can it be. img_2437.jpgimg_2436.jpg

    ask Mr Google to find you the army manual for the Index 847. The lower part of the head is the same as the 845.

    I didn't have any trouble with my 847, once I had it cleaned up.
    iirc it should be adjusted to push a 5/16 drill in steel without slipping.

    if all else fails call Wells-Index, they'll help you ;-))
