Headstock Reassembly Speed Control(B)

Post by JPG »

This thread illustrates a method of reassembling the speed control in to the headstock. This is the second of two.

With the speed control set to the high speed stop position, from the inside of the headstock, slip the square shaped 'ring' over the quadrant arm. Depress the flat spring(with a step near the end) to get the loop onto the arm. NOTE: This pix was taken with the speed control set to slow. The square 'ring' slips over the quadrant arm when set to high speed.

Position the outer ring to indicate 'fast'. Notice the shaft on to which the knob attaches has a 'dimple' drilled into it. The knob set screw MUST be tightened into that depression. Slide the knob onto the shaft and feel the screw centering into the 'dimple' by rocking the knob back and forth. Tighten the set screw at the center/bottom of the 'dimple'.

This thread is intended to be ONE of several showing reassembly of a disassembled headstock. A single thread titled Headstock Reassembly http://www.shopsmith.net/forums/showthread.htm?t=3765 links to all of these threads. These threads will be edited as necessary to correct any errors or confusion.

This thread is 2 of 2 showing speed control reassembly.

That makes sense, thanks for that. Is there a video anywhere?
