Thanks all for the suggestions.

After to close to an hour and a half on the phone with Busy Bee the result was that the “technical customer support” gentleman essentially told me that it’s my fault and that they aren’t prepared to help me out. Apparently he has never heard of anyone else having this issue, there is nothing wrong with the materials used or design of the saw and as a result it must be something I’m doing wrong. I was just a bit surprised…

Towards a solution, I also kind of suspected that the UNC threads were the source of the problem. I’m in the process of “rebuilding” the mechanism with ACME. The stock tension rod is 3/8” but I’m sort of tempted to (since I’m rebuilding it anyway) to switch to a 1/2”. Any thoughts?
