Material feed mechanism - unable to build


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material feed mechanism - unable to build

After the long wait for the kit, problems seem to be comon place.

Ignoring the missing grub screws and a possibly dodgy bearing (which I will report to support) I continued on to see if I could actually install the machine.

Material feed mechanism however is defeating me, it looks like the parts simple are no correct.

I have the 10a etc part on the motor and constructe the higed part that should fit into it (also 10a and 10c but with plastic bits in between) however if I attach the hinge screw as instructed then the smaller part will not rotate into the area it should (the wooden parts are wrong shape, too large to roate in) and if I slide the unit into place (it just about fit) then the screw holes are in the wrong place.

This is a kit sent last week btw.

    Thanks for replying falc

    The thing I note is that when going by the piccites 10A (large bit) is matcing with 10c small rotating bit which I think could be my problem

    Do you have both 10a's on the same side?

    ignore pictures and instructions and build it to fit. Seems to be ok now.

    Some of the photos are of older revision machines. If you come across this it's best to edit the wiki to mark those photos as outdated. Then other people will not run into the same problem.
