Having recently acquired a Bridgeport. I have discovered that the feed reverse knob assembly has been sheared off at some time. The assembly is attached to the reverse clutch rod by what appears to be 8- 32 UNC thread measuring at 5/32 and this has sheared off inside the reverse clutch rod, so try as I might I cannot remove the remains.
I have obtained new spares but the clutch rod is pinned to another rod in the head to which I would need to access to replace.
I have copies of the Bridge port manual parts list but this just shows a whole page of disembodied parts with no indication of interconnection. There is no easy direct access to the parts to view and I know that in there, is a whole load of worm gears, springs etc. and I am not particularly keen to go in and start dismantling and have a whole load of bits explode on to the floor!
Anyone had any previous experience? - or any pointers to information?
