Hi Richard firstly may I say I've purchased two back plates from different companies and neither have screwed on my S7, what would help members to advise you would be a photo if possible and in the meantime make sure the thread on your ML7 is clean and undamaged also would you like to tell us the company who supplied your chuck.

Was in hospital yesterday for a transperineal biopsy the surgeon came to the waiting area and said there was unfortunately going to be a two hour delay however he did say why later I asked the theater sister what the problem was she told me that a piece of equipment had been sent to Germany for a service and had been returned with a part missing so they had to send to Nuneaton for the part "Vorsprung durch Technik" or what !!!

Thanks very much to all those who answered. Jason gets the prize with Forrest Classics,

Brian

Ive seen Keith Appleton use Forrest elbows and he's had to re-tap them as the thread in them is US

Harry

The U S tapped ones are probably the single finished machined items bought in from P M R in America as opposed to the casting sticks.

Sorry didn't know PMR offered them unthreaded blush
