    A problem...

    On the top of the fine-feed screw at the side, there is a screw behind which i think should be a spring and a little bone-shaped object - this bone has broken and the end is jamming the screw in the head which needs to come out. Its well and truly jammed in there.


    Any suggestions here?

    That is actually very common on Bridgeports. On my KRV it was hollow. I removed it be jamming a pin in but you need to wiggle the depth stop screw a bit to release it.

    Another option would be to magnetise a paperclip?

    Yeah tried magnets, that thing is jammed in there good not just sitting there. It never did work properly - this maybe why.

    Will have to get tougher on it i think, one way or another its coming out though.

    Got it!

    Another two hours messing, a Dremel, two small screwdrivers, compressed air and WD40 and it's out.

    Now i can continue on the rest of the job.
