hange gear cover was broken into bits and the plastic gear on the auto feed
screw was also broken in bits. The power box was broken at the bolt holes
so was hanging off.
Instead of sending it back which was a real hassle I contacted the company
and had replacement parts sent as I felt it was just superficial damage.
After fixing it up and using it a few times I noticed a wobble. I thought i
t was runout but looking at the spindle from behind after taking off the ch
ange gear cover I noticed a slight wobble in the spindle. The gear on the b
ack end of the spindle seems to mesh tighter with the gear under it at one
point in a single revolution.
Now I am thinking that it was dropped during transit obviously but as the f
eed screw gear was broken it must have caused a shock up the gear train and
maybe bending the spindle?
Im not 100% sure tho as the bearings seem to move slightly during revolutio
Anyone have any recomendations?
