My Unifence handle is not staying down/engaged. It’s somehow to do with the handle/cam lever and/or thrust washer and/or…? If I hold itin position/down the fence locks tight in place as it should...no lateral movement. But as soon as I let go of the handle, it drops away from thrust washer allowing fence to travel.
It’s not the slide(s) assembly or the adjustment nuts…handle self-releases as soon as I let go of it no matter how tight or loose they are set. I think the problem has to do with the answer to the question: what keeps the handle down/locked in the first place? Are either the cam or thrust washer considered "wear" or "consumable" items? Is there something that helps create friction or "stick" that is supposed to between the cam and the washer that has worn away?
My hope is this is somehow a general, or regular, or known issue with a “tribal knowledge” fix. I am happy to take/post pics or a short vid of handle self-releasing if it would help.
Honestly, I’d replace the whole fence (not rail) assembly if I could, but kinda hard to find something I know would fit/work, i.e. an exact (where it matters) replacement.
