On my ME10, the dials are friction loaded. Under the grub-screw is a small spring and a brass disc pressing on the shaft.The friction pressure is controlled by adjusting the grub-screw,(hope my memory is correct).

Sounds as if your grub-screws are over-tight. Try slackening them. It's also possible that your springs and pads are missing.

Hope that helps,


Wot he said.

Me being the weirdo that i am, i went backwards and fitted brass knurled screws which i prefer and know that nothing has moved.
