Hello All
On a Kaiser Universe I’m restoring the two level adjusters on the bottom end with the threaded rod. Should there be feet or something? There is no way to tell from the outside if you’re screwing the foot too far in. Once you pass that point, the knurled wheel is below the gear at the top of the threaded rod and will no longer engage. You have to remove the bottom plate to correct. The feet were locked when I got the clock for that reason.
I put a brass nut at the end of each rod and loctited them in for want of a better solution. Should I be looking for missing feet?

Thanks for any info
Rt

For what I can see you have all the parts. Where you put the nut should be the top. The small gear that engages the wheel is the foot.

You’re right, of course. I have the base plate upside down. I have to say I feel a little bit silly right now. :(

Thanks for setting me straight.
