firstly thank you OPJ for the link to NMA. i have just this min got of the phone with there tec department. the fault that we are having Chris with the table dropping on thiknessing is a common fault with chain drive sistems he tels me. the tecdepartment say that if you turn the plainer on its face under neath is a tensioning wheel for the chain. you will need a 6mm alan key and a 8 mm spanner to do this undo the 2 nutsas seen in photo 3 below . then tighten the tention wheel with a lengh of wood just sufisient to take up the play on the chain.hold this still with the 6mm allan key and re tighten the two 8mm nuts try the plainer and see if the tension is sufishent that it dos not drop while thiknessing .
this is the chain tensioner in question
this is were the tentioner canb be found.
i hope this works for you as it has for me . again OPJ many thanks for the company prompt.
