Just came to use it and can't engage the travel.
The screw cutting side of it works fine as does manual feed.
If I can get the apron off the threaded feed bar I can get it apart.
So first question is how do I remove the apron. I've taken the bracket off the end and there's a slot in the feed bar and once the apron reaches the end of the slot it comes to a stop so there must be a pin in there somewhere.

Overall maybe a gear has moved out of line? Any ideas?

All good, fettled it.
Split threader yoke on the right which detaches box from drive shaft.
Large middle gear in left side train had fallen off, screw come undone after 30+ years
Given it all a much deserved clean out and fresh oil and grease

Glad you sorted it. I've been tearing into the cross slide on my new hardinge today. Had to take a hell of a lot of photos so I can get it back together!
