  • Really tight quill feed on my rockwell

    When I tighten the clutch on the quill feed for my rockwell, I cannot rotate the fine speed quill feed. Any clue as to what is happening here?

    This sound exactly as what happened to me. Everything was fine on the feed side, perfect in fact. It was the locking dowel on the opposite side that was no releasing. The front dowel released but the rear one did not.

    Just take them out and mill or file new flats - problem fixed.
