    In PARALLEL?

    You are probably forked. Highly probable.

    If some of them are burnt, they probably failed under an event so damaging they were UNABLE to fully protect what they were paralleled...

    +1 Just use the Roton 1/2" components in their 8 TPI option and no need to mess with the dial graduations. It will also have the same "feel" you have become accustomed to, whereas the the finer pitch...

    I would not. Disassemble it.

    Here's a thought. I bought an Ellis DH that the PO had pranged. Minor damage, one position. Same symptom as you have. Binding as it engaged that damaged tooth.

    eStop buttons are cheap to buy - five bucks or so on-up - and easy to wire, VFD or any other power.

    "No larger than 4 ft" you will probably find a Taiwanese knock-off that is sixty years newer the better deal.

    If I owned a sine plate that handy, present-day?

    I am JUST enough of a hypocrite, I might be tempted.

    So I don't. Own a sine plate.

    Sadly, yes. Whomever was meant to prepare it for shipping. Clearly DID NO SUCH THING! Get more pictures, time dated.

    I've used "to the trade" sources in Florida for Donkey's years. Watch for those "online" who have high-volume, decent close-out/clearance, and great shipping arrangements. Then "go ogle" for praise...

    "Drill" not-only..
