hi all will throw this out there on the mane shaft that's the silver one in the pick on the top there shod be  a ejector nut its a 16mm by 1 mm pitch thread with a hole in it witch you un do the draw bar when the draw bar  hits this it shoves the morce taper free has any one got one they can do a drawing off so I can make one up the manufacture name plat sits right behind the shaft and was well beaten up as people had bin hitting the draw bar with a hammer and the plate at the same time I have removed the name plat as the motor is gnaw 240 volt still kept the plate im going to put a pace of stanles steel in its place hopefully this week end

I do have one of those "undo"- caps on my Emco FB2 mill. All it really is, is a sleeve or cap over the drawbar bolt which resist the force of the screw coming up. Rather simple really.
