    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    3 month update This machine is now everything I want for my purposes. It has all the power I need and it's now so easy to use and accurate. One thing I don't think I mentioned, I have now replaced ALL those silly hex socket screws, of a variety of sizes, with knurled or star knob screws bought...

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Post script Having used the machine a bit now, it's sop much better for the mods. They cost very little but did take quite a bit of time and creativity. I think I've identified the root cause of the failure in the first place. I was being lazy and using the tension indicator on the machine...

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Sadly not. I'm sure there wouldn't have been a problem if it was. It's a box standard M8x1.25 thread on a rather soft material. Defo not fit for purpose, found several posts here where it had failed. The upside is the nut is obviously much harder, the thread is fine. Last night I cut a 2x100mm...

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Many thanks for the advice - really appreciated. I'm hoping my Materials Technology recall (from 48 years ago!) is accurate in that what I call 'picking up' happens with materials of the same or very similar microscopic surface finish. I'm current having to re-work a moving assembly on my yacht...

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Hi all. Hi Bob. Thought you would like to know the outcome. When I tried to bend the wheel plate back into shape with a long pipe, I braced myself for a big heave... and found out the plate had all the stiffness of a sheet of plasticine! I braced behind it (tracking screw side - no room on the...

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Many thanks Bob. You've answered my question! My expectation would be the wheel should be parallel to the carrier. I've tried hard to get that answer out of RP and, while they have been attentive and tried, sending the assembly to them to inspect seems more than a little unnecessary with what I...

    Sadly not, that would have been an easy fix!

    Many thanks for your quick response! Can you comment on whether that wheel carrier is distorted?

    Record Power BS300E unable to set tracking

    Hi all. I'm new to this site and found it looking for solutions to this problem. I'm very impressed at how helpful the contributors are! I agree with many contributors that, in the past, Record Power machines have been let down by inferior materials and flawed engineering / manufacturing. The...
