SOURCE: Meade DS2102 Telescope lost teeth for focusing in and out

It might be easiest to see if someone is selling one on Craig's list or ebay.  You might be able to find one used where the telescope is OK, but the motorized drive is broken and replace the telescope.
Here is the contact information for Meade:

You could try calling them and see if they will sell the part you need for the focuser.  The focuser is called a rack and pinion focuser.  From your description it is hard to know if it is the long linear gear on the draw-tube (the part that holds the eyepiece) or the gear on the shaft of the focusing knob.  You will need to be able to describe that to them.
I hope that helps.

You will need to buy another focuser like one of these.

This is a nice scope.
1. without an eyepiece, look into the eyepiece holder. You should see the secondary mirror and the reflection of the primary mirror in the secondary. If not, carefully align the secondary by either rotating the spider or GENTLY aligning the secondary screws (see collimating the scope in your instruction manual)
2. During the day, point the telescope to an object about 100 yards away, use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) and see if you can focus on the object.

Why is the unit freezing? It is a TRUE TSSU-60-16.


Turn down the temp and move produce item closer to the front. The air exits the evaporator at around 28 degrees. Possible you need a thermostat.

if you are referring to microsoft word

Microsoft Word is one of the most widely used text editors in the business world today.

Using Word, you occasionally experience glitches like missing Menu items.


You open Word and while preparing your document realize the Menu item you want to use has magically disappeared.

You can restore it easily.

There are ways to restore lost Menu items in Microsoft Word.


Check your Menu to confirm the button you are looking for is really missing.

Microsoft Word is intuitive and continually adjusts to show the options you choose most often.


Click the double arrow near the bottom of the Menu items to reveal the hidden options.

Click the Menu item you are looking for.


Use that Menu item often and Word will place it in your Menu for easy access.

Replace the missing Menu item in Microsoft Word. Click Tools - Customize.


Select the Commands tab.

Click Rearrange Commands.


Add the Menu item you lost in Microsoft Word.

Select the Menu bar at the top.


Use the drop down menu to select File. Open Controls.

Highlight the Menu item under the File menu and click the Add button.


Select File under Categories. Open Commands and select desired button.

Click Ok.


Word will reveal a preview of the File menu including your changes.

Select the desired Menu item.


Click Add.

To adjust the position of the Menu item you added.


Click Move Up or Move Down.

Continue to adjust them until you achieve your desired results.


Click Close to close the window.

Click File, Exit to close Microsoft Word.


hope this helps

Chain is off and I am not sure how to get the adjusting screw in


You don't need the adjusting screw, if it is missing, you can still run the saw. Get the chain straightened out on the blade, with the cover on if you can, keep the cover bolt loose, put the blade in a vise, pull on the saw and tighten the cover bolt at the same time, make sure the chain moves, as long as it is not dangling down real loose, you should be all set. My adj screw bit the dust years ago, so did the safety bar. Still works great.

How do I adjust the screen geometry?



Sharp

Important !
After you get to the item that needs adjusting
Write down the original setting
just in case you have to go back.

1. TV unplugged
2. Press and hold the'Vol down' and 'channel up'
3. While holding the buttons, plug in the TV.
You are now in the Adjustment mode
You will be presented with a category menu containing.
Deflection
Signal
Feature
Fix Value
EEPROM
4. Use the 'Channel up'or"Channel dwn' to select the category.
note:Not all models will have 5 categories, some will jump to the 'Signal' category.
5. Use the 'Volume up' to enter the category.
6. Use Channel up and down select the item to be adjusted.
7. Write down the old value of the item before changing.
8. Volume up and down adjust the value.
9. When you have made all the adjustments you want turn the set off to exit.

Data sheets are available for most models. These sheets list a description for each
item as well as data range and typical settings for your model. If your setting is
substantially different than the sheet then you may be developing a problem.
you want to go into deflection mode and look for pincushion items i.e pin amp,bow etc. AND don`t forget to write down original values

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .
