|Capt. Dave||Hello. I am willing to pay you for a copy of the Mill Right 529 manual if you did scan it.|

I see that you might have access to a user manual for this versatile machine.
How might I entice you to provide an electronic copy of that manual?

What about using a long allen bolt to replace the bolts? I doubt that an allen wrench would break. |

|Mayhem||Other than the handles breaking I have been pretty happy with the quality of the unit. I can live with using a socket wrench to tighten the clamps. I was hoping to find replacements but like you I don't think there were a lot of these sold so if thee handles were specific to the Mill Right then there is not much hope of finding originals. Here is my latest project that was partially made with the help of the Mill Right. It is an Aggravation board game. There are 7 different types of wood used.|

Interesting to read about your issue with the handles breaking. When I took delivery of my unit it had been dissembled for shipping, and it was only upon re-assembly that I discovered a broken handle. I've since attempted to source (online) a new handle but have not been successful to date. That said, my gut tells me that that there were not of lot of these units sold, and it's very unlikely that original parts will ever come to the market.
Further too, this time last week after spending more than a day becoming familiar with the 529 and the Elu plunge router that came together as a purchase, I powered it up and trimmed up some end grained cutting boards. Frankly, I was amazed!
This unit is definitely going to be a keeper so I've engineered a dust collection system and since crafted an offset wrench to facilitate above the table bit changes. These were time well spent projects.
As is, I'm expecting a new Dewalt 611PK router in the mail today....let the fun begin!!

I'd be willing to bet that McMaster-Carr has something similar, but it would take some additional searching. Seeing the picture disassembled, the cheapest star knobs available are designed to accept a user-supplied nut or bolt and if they are drilled through might work. Keeping a nut-driver handy would work for me--but i'm used to reaching for an allen wrench all the time anyway. |
