Timbuck- What are the symptoms of this problem? I am having a slight problem keeping the drum parallel to the table. Pals, Vic.

My feed is failing... it wont take hardly an cut without jamming. Time to think about a replacement.

could be dust in the roller bearings and reducing gears..Best strip it down clean and lubricate...or just sell it as is, and get a 16-32 model.;)

it just needs setting up right and locking in place..I do mine with the sanding belt off, and use an old steel ruler as a feeler gauge in between the drum and the conveyor...With the machine switched off of course

I just completed the repair Kit for the USA Guy..He sent me his spindle so a could machine the new nut..This spindle was only .007" undersize but ! it still stripped the threads :(...I've been keeping a record of the spindle sizes .. Starting from the smallest .545", .546", .546" .547", .553" ;)

My 16/2 has never had the problems that you've mentioned with the 10/20 and it's got a ton of use on it. The only thing I've ever replaced is the feed belt.

Yes ! I think the 16-32 is a better design also..but I don't have the space for one.

Just fixing another with the kit for a Guy in Iowa ..I've upgraded the kit now co's the sizes of the spindles vary that much, I now use split bush design that can be adjusted to fit all sizes with a couple of adjusting socket screws..so there will be no need to send me the spindles anymore I'll just supply the part direct...I intend to have them available on eBay soon. :)
