Re: Broken quick change gearbox


I used an electric impact hammer and gently backed the screws out with a good fitting bit. You can also use the spring loaded kind that you hit with a hammer but I think the electric one is better and does less damage.

As I recall the lead screw stays attached until you remove it from the box.

Good luck,

The gear box is now freed up thanks Ted worked perfect any tips on removing the three slotted screws holding the gearbox to the ways I couldn't budge them. How does the lead screw come out of the gearbox or do you remove the whole thing?
