When I bought my Super 7, I was told that there was a washer missing
underneath the cross-slide handle - basically the micrometer dial
doesn't move when you wind the cross slide in and out. I tried using
the washer from underneath the compound handle (same part number) and
it just jams. I then made some different washers from brass shim stock
but couldn't get one to the right thickness to prevent jamming or give
enough friction to make the dial turn.
