    The table locking cam ought to work against the lower gib only AFAIK and we're talking about the upper gib now right? And the cam would press against the side that did not have the brass on it.

    I don't have one yet because my machine is not running, gear box still not reassembled and I also took apart the motor now to swap bearings.

    But the original fault was previous owners using...

    Definitely feels like you got some issues with the lower gib galling in place to me. That's how mine came, already pre-galled and the adjustment screw also bent, some real deja vu feelings from your...

    It's not relevant to your problem, just that it seems the previous owners covered up the old taper hole and made a new one further out, and now there is a space behind the clutch. If this assembly...

    If this holds up, that's an interesting observation as my own mill has some oddness in that position, the purpose of the steel collar is thus not just a drive key for an accessory and to keep the...

    If it was me I would commence with a tear-down of the vertical table and take pictures of the whole process and post it here, remove the gibs, lead screw and nut and detailed pictures of everything...

    I cannot see the pictures either. In your shoes I would be worried about putting the replacement cap on without first nailing down what happened.

    Yes this is exactly how it worked out for me. And yes the cam was a bushing that went over the hex rod, not an integral part of the shaft. It can only come out if you pull the hex shaft out towards...

    I tried to find the relevant pictures last night, but I have not been able to show you anything. As sigursag said, it's a locking pin, it sits in this hole:

    I have this piece that goes through to the other side and on the other side there is another thrust bearing and two lock nuts holding everything together. I can't remember if there was a piece of...

    Oh man you are having some really bad luck with this machine :( Hopefully you can buy a new cap from Singer or have that one brazed or TIG welded with nickel filler. Or maybe stitched. Not sure what...

    I thought Deckel went with steel gibs because when you have a soft and harder material gliding against each other, the softer material becomes the part who lasts longer, so they could control wear to...

    There is something bronze looking in the lower gib as jz79 pointed out, could you take a better picture of that?

    I am wondering what allowed the side cap to move at all, it should be bolted down...
