    Default Warranty for CarveTight Spindle

    Does anyone know if there is a warranty on the CarveTight Spindle? This afternoon I was trying to finish up a last minute gift and everything was going fine. I walked over to the machine as I often do to check on the progress and saw that the head of the bottom left bolt was laying in my sled. Looks like it just sheared off. The bearing still seems like it is tight enough as I can't feel any movement side to side with it.
    I put the CarveTight Spindle on both of my machines about 3 weeks ago and have not had any problems with either one until today.
    Do I need to send it back to LHR for a replacement? I know there is no one there the rest of this week, so I can't call them until Monday.

    It sounds like it might of been over tightened. You should be able to replace the bolt/screw if you can get it out.
