    Happy holidays to you and yours too. Many thanks to you and everyone else for sharing your knowledge, troubles and solutions here. I had no idea this forum/community existed before I bought my FP2,...

    You must have a foreign object of some description rattling around between the table and the chewed up gib. That would explain the random lockup behavior and the damage to the edge of the gib.

    So it's not e.g. glued to the gib along it's length? If so, I wonder if one or the other of the strips is crumpling or wrinkling up to cause the binding.
  4. I seem to remember you said the gibs are...

    I seem to remember you said the gibs are protruding somewhat far out of the saddle. When you drive from right to left, that'd have the effect of driving the gib out of the saddle - effectively to...

    If you pull out the lower gib, the locking pin will drop. I don't imagine you can re-fit it without taking the table off - at least I couldn't figure out any way to do so when I had the table off my...

    This could have happened when your gib bound up, though?

    Hey John - these pictures don't work for me. Re-upload, perhaps?

    Did you figure out what caused the stress on the endcap casting yet?

    The three hypothesis I've seen are:

    X slideway bound up. Doesn't seem likely as you were able to easily able to move the...

    Well then, so much for my theory. Guess the slide ways bound up somehow.

    I recently took the table off my FP2, and I had hands on this during de- and reassembly. You can pull the hex locking bar right out without trouble.

    The hexagonal bar slides through the locking...

    Here is the parts drawing of the operator's side endcap:
    269932.

    The plastic piece would be part 2001-162 in that drawing. The way it's drawn, however, I'd expect it to be a metal spacer sized...

    Ouch, I have nothing to contribute but condolences. I hope you get to the bottom of what happened and get the mill going again.

    This is just the sort of thing I could see myself doing :D.
