So the Repeater-Stop and L&H cutter arrived, the cutter looks like it's never been used as does the Repeater-stop actually. After carefully examining the thing and attempting to get it mounted properly on a couple of machines, I put it back in the box until yesterday. The original instructions are present yet kind of unclear, so I was still confused. Last night, I took another look and realized that the entire center shaft / worm gear are completely seized. I can't tell if the worm gear is pot metal or not, but it seems to me that it might be. This morning before I left for work, I gave it a good shot with PB blaster and stuck it in the freezer where it will stay until at least tomorrow. I sure hope I can get this thing working.
