Default Milling Machine Question

I feel I should be able to figure this out......but, this one has me stumped. I don't use this machine too often, but it still bugs me that I cannot figure out how to use this rotary adjustment! Anyone know how?

I turn this "FINE DOWNFEED HANDLE" it just spins and spins, there is no small incremental movement in the main downfeed position!!!! I have tried pulling/pushing on this "FINE DOWNFEED HANDLE" to engage it's use rather than the pictured "MAIN DOWNFEED HANDLE".....nothing!!!

Anybody know how to engage the "FINE DOWNFEED HANDLES's" use?

Did you try to move the main feed handle ?

It may need to slide to get the fine feed handle running.

Doesn't the small lever with the red knob on the left side not lock the spindle in place ?

You're welcome. There is always a device to lock the height in position for milling, there will be a good amount of force on the spindle if the feed rate was too heavy..
