Taken the plunge and joined the group. Looks like tonight will be good so hope to get out later. One of these days I will get some images.
Martin - found the problem with play/backlash. Coco the clown I bought it from dismantled it to change the nylon bearing balls to stainless steel and left out a a "too difficult" bolt when reassambling. I've managed to find a substitute which I had to modify and all seems well now. Fingers crossed.
Incidentally images uploaded on the other forum all very excellent (thinks "envy") ah well!!
