          John, it wouldn't be worth taking pics yet.
          There's still too much light reflection from the big grin on my face!
          Actually I now have the little bevel gear freed up but the jackscrew will still only turn a little better than half a turn.
          There is something metalic stopping it.
          Finally figured out what the extra bevel gears are for.
          Ha..the knee is powered as well.
          There's three little gears way up under the knee right behind the bevel drive gear for the knee.
          Very hard to see up in there.
          It almost seems like a pin or bolt has backed out and is catching on something.
          All the gears are held on with 1/8" or 3/16" drift pins...one may have worked loose.
          Have to get up in there and clean some black goo out to see it better.
          Mark..thanks for your help!

              Russ, your new motto should be "If I can't fix it - it ain't broke". Congrats on your accomplishments so far. Keep smiling.

                  Thanks guys!
                  I have to be honest...this morning, after hours of jacking that stupid knee back and forth, fore and aft...I was starting to wonder if this thing would ever come loose.
                  When the spindle cracked it gave me a lot more git-up and go.
                  Tomorrow I'm going to polish up one of the arbors and put a DI on it.
                  I'm still weary. Was told by two people that it needed an arbor. Neither know anything about machines so I'm at a loss what it really needs.
                  Honestly, this thing is in very good shape despite the rust.
                  Once the jackscrew problem is solved I'm thinking this will be a serviceable mill.
                  Just think...it was almost hauled out for scrap.
                  Now we have hours of cleaning and bolt busting...lol!
