I have a couple of Omega d5's & just last night I ran into a problem which I would like to share with you, and ask what may be done and if others had the same experience.
The Column Cover is double taped to the column, and it lost its adhesion( way po or design in my opinion--tape). The column "fell" from its correct position wit hout my knowing, and when I lowered (cranked) the head to its lowest position, the head became stuck due to the "felled" cover . Not sensing this problem, I over cranked the head and stripped the Allen hd sc rew #8-32x1/4 on the crank which is attached to the gear drive which allows the head to move up & down. The Allen head nut is flimsy in my opinion, and I'm una ble to tighten it enough (on the drive gear) in order to raise or lower the head ----- way poor design.
so--new tape & new Allen nut------any comments or observations?
