    I have had a look at the thicknesser pictures and do not see the round bar. Does it remain in place when you raise the cutting head to set the stock thickness, All I saw was the adjusting handle and the lock lever above the cutting head, there is no bar shown in the pictures. Come back to me with what you see.

Trunk won't stay up

The bar,called a strut snaps on to a small piece that is connected to the chassis of the vehicle.It should have a clip that lifts up,put the end of the strut over the piece on the chassis,and push the clip back down.You dont even need tools.

Chain won't stay on the bar when its turning

A number of possibilites, either the chain tention is too lose, or there is inadiquate chain oil to the bar, or the machine is being twisted in the cut by the operator or the type of timber being cut, poor chain sharpening, or damage to the chain drive links due to coming off the first time.

I have an activa 130 and the foot won't go all the way down

Is your machine fitted with a knee-lifter ? If so, its possible the knee-lift mechanism has got stuck, which will prevent the foot from coming all the way down. It's also possible that the foot lifter bar has slipped which will require re-setting. When the foot is lifted and the feed-dogs are dropped, there should be a clearance of about 7.5mm between the underside of the foot and the stitch plate.

My needle won't move even with hand wheel. Feed dogs move. Bobbin turns. Bobbin winder is off. Did same thing last night then worked when I turned it on this morning. Quit with 6 inches left of 12 yard...

You have a gumed up basting device, You can try to fix yourself but should be taken to a bernina teck for a fix. Take the end cap/head cap/ side panel/ needle bar panel off. It is one screw on the left side.
Remove neddle
Find the needle bar
On the needle bar there is a black small pice, it is round and has a little tab that stitcks off it.
Pull the needle down and push/pull/wiglle soft on the small black tab.
There is a small pin inside that should clip into a hole in the needle bar.
This should get your machine sewing again but the basting device realy should be cleaned and adjusted, should be around $45-100.
Hope this helps.

Cannot keep chain tight

Chain stretch is usually caused by inadiquate oil/ or incorrect oil to the chain, aim the tip of the bar at a clean peice of timber, you should see a good line of oil spray from the tip of the bar onto the timber.
Very dirty or dusty timber will also dry the oil out on the chain, and cause chain stretch.

I need a blade for the Stur-Dee Mitey-MIll Type MX3. I think this small mill was manufactured by Varco Inc -France. The original address for the Stur-Dee Products that distributed this Mitey-Mill was 238...

You give no details about your mill (flour mill, animal feed mill, pepper mill, age...) but I fear your quest may be fruitless even in the internet age.

Companies are bought out so often and manufacturing transferred to other facilities producing related or unrelated products that are then brand engineered.

Taking this with the extremely short memory possessed by commerce and the fact few companies make entire articles for themselves and lots of well known companies make nothing for themselves. The far east has been producing components (and all manner of whole machines and devices) for western "manufacturers" for many decades. Eastern Europe and Italy have also been producers.

Brand engineering of cheap mass produced items into "quality" items has been common for more than a century. Spare parts are generally uncommon and the sellers of such are quick to deny all knowledge of such items.

I suggest having the original blade refurbished or a new blade fabricated would probably be quicker...

What preasure does a rockworth framing nailer need to operate

You did not provide brand, but this broad spectrum will give you some indication. Framers operate, depending on the brand, on 45psi (2.5bar) to 120psi (8.3bar).

Setting depend on several variables, that is thickness of the timber, hardness of the timber, lenght of the nail, to certain extend hardness and diameter of the nail..

You know that pressure is correct to material when nail head is flushed with surface of the timber or very slightly below.

If nail stick above the surface, you need increase pressure (in stages! do not jump from one extremity to another!), till you achieve flash suurface.

if nail takes "dive" and is more than thickness of the head below the surface, you need to decrease the pressure till you achieve this "golden" level of flush or just below the surface.

Sometime there is necessity to drive nails into totally unsuitable surface of timber (for example bamboo, yes, I know it sound ridiculous, but not everyone live in north america...), it is then good idea to spray nails with teflon or silicone oils, This treatment allow penetration even in bamboo, mahagony and other timbers harder than 12 in Jenkins scale without riping them apart.

Albeit if I see you firing nailer in my workshop into mahagony I will fire you... :-)

Hope this short intro into the noble art of framing and pneumatic nailer world will help you. Do not forget wearing protective glassess or face shield while using nailer! You have only two eyes and there is no spares...
