    This happens sometimes with this type of mill. The symptoms can be mysterious and it is an easy trap to fall into. No harm done and you have a much better understanding of how your mill works now....

    I have looked at your later photos of the gearbox internals and they do seem to show a full complement of gears. I think it would still be a good idea to check all gear selections just to...

    Thanks for your PM regarding your Thiel. I will answer as best I can here rather than via PM just in case the information is useful for any others who come here.

    Definitely check the motor rotation before you do anything else.

    You can be misled by the rotary controls for the feed gearbox. They can sometimes appear to engage a gear when in fact you have a...
