View Full Version : Help- Drawbar skips while tightening.

I have a Grizzly 10x54 knee mill. Today while holding the spindle brake and tightening the draw bar it felt like I was using a 13/16 wrench instead of a 3/4 on a nut and it stripped the points. I was using the 3/4" drawbar wrench on the drawbar as usual but something between the brake and the spindle is skipping like an oversize wrench stripping the points off a soft nut.

The head is a variable speed belt drive. The mill is about 5 years old and doesn't have a lot of hours on it.
