    Round column gear head won’t raise or kower

    Won’t budge. When I turn the crank cw it backs the shaft out cow turns it back in but then it stops and the head won’t move. Anyone familiar with the anatomy of this detail? I can’t find any good exposed diagrams of it. I need to use this machine and have to lower the head so I’m in a bind now. If anyone can help it’s greatly appreciated.

    Is there perhaps a locking screw you haven't found yet?
