Re: [GrizHFMinimill] Question on gear change lever?
- Hi All:
On my HF minimill (changed to true inch lead screws) I notice the speed
change lever does not go all the way from vertical to horizontal. I am
wondering if something is "hung up" or if it designed that way?

Mine doesn't either but as long as the gears engage positively then there
isn't a problem/ Sometime you may have to rotate the spindle a few degrees
to get the teeth to mesh properly and that will cause the handle to hang-up,
try that and see if it engages any better. If you;re fully engaged and the
handle still isn't in the full up or down position then I wouldn't worry
about it. All of the mills are a little dofferent and it's the gear
engagement that counts rather than handle position but you'll want to cycle
it from hi to low a few times to loosen it up and find out just where the
engagement point is for your particular mill.
