    I can only agree with you Sigurasg. Sadly we'll never know whether it happened at the first seizure when the "Shear pin" DID fail.

    If you remember I'd stopped for a drink and returned to the...

    Hi Ross

    The "Shear pin" was installed the correct way around with the spring keeper holding it there. The hole at the opposite side to the pin is much larger as you well know and I suspect a...

    Hi Peter,

    I'm in agreement with you, the replacement End Cap that I've ordered from FS is going to sit on the shelf until I get this fault solved.

    Thanks for your input :)

    Hi Thanos, thanks for your comments

    Yes I know the 4x30 DIN1 is not a shear pin but rather a taper pin but it most certainly has "Sheared" both ends of the leadscrew hole and as you very rightly...

    Hi Dennis ... It's beating me too ...

    I can also wind slack into the leadscrew and push it very smoothly L2R or visa versa.

    Also while writing I can now confirm that the previously mentioned...

    Hi Peter

    The previously noted 0.75mm gap I reported after the first failure I did nothing about as it just "Closed" of its own accord so I guess the pressure had eased off?

    While writing - a...

    10 minutes?? I'd have expected 5 from a full time professional machine engineer :D

    I'd really appreciate a little more detail here please "everything laying down it was easy to put it back" ......

    Hi Sigurasg - great spot on the internal collar, just added that to my FS shopping list - might was well replace it when I find a replacement end cap.

    As for the table direction it was running...

    Hi Dennis, great pictures! Yes I've got the same as you - thrust bearings either side and it would appear from the above observation from Sigurasg that there is a nylon spacer or bush - I'll order a...

    Hi Ross, thank you for your valued input, gut feeling is that I'll replace the studs (already removed) with Cap Head Allens.

    Still need some clarification on the hexagonal locking lever bar.

    Well after feeling my way very cautiously and a couple of questions to Bruce and Peter I began the removal of the end cap today.

    The cap itself was a PITA to remove as it's very hard to get at two...

    Hi Thanos - Ah miss information on my behalf ... NO, the table didn't get to the end of travel, if it had the trips should have worked but the crunch happened BEFORE the trip could action.
