I am on the finishing stages of getting my 1955 Mark V 500. I need some advice on my quill lock. My quill lock will not lock. It appears something is missing, but when I look at the parts list, everything is there. The spherical washer is there, next is the quill feed sleeve, Washer and quill lock handle, but when tighten the quill lock handle it makes contact with the headstock first. Is there another anything else that I am missing. When comparing it with the exploded view it is all there.

I put this in the wrong section, it should be in Mark V.

I have no answers for you, sorry. But I'm hoping someone does as I seem to have done the same thing on my MarkVII. Can't see what I did wrong according to the diagram.

Anybody?

I'll take a guess.

The washer you speak of is conical.

My guess is that it's installed backwards. allowing the quill lock to screw in too far and not apply pressure to clamp the quill.

The washer large diameter should be installed so that it contacts the clamp ear inside the headstock casting. Since it's conical, the small inner diameter is then compressed by the sleeve when the quill lock is tightened.

If the washer is installed backwards then the large (outside) diameter won't make contact with the ear inside the headstock housing.

Clear as mud?

I've been away from the forum recently due to some bad news. My cancer screen came back positive. Also, my employer is having a reduction in force next month.

My M7 restoration has taken a back seat to just about everything else at the moment. So if you're wondering how I'm doing with the M7 lately, now you know.
