Can I ask the collective for advice. I am just getting into understanding and repairing ( Wooden cases dull metal surfaces of Fork etc.) my very old and beautiful Quantum 6 I just got.
I can see that this black knob that engages the clutch for the bottom dial / knob is super stiff. It only rotates maybe 15 degrees or so. When it is tightened, the larger round knob does rotates the scope. When the black pin is rotated about 15 degrees clockwise it disengages the dial, and the dial does not rotate the fork / scope.
Can I deal with this tight black knob my self? Dare I try to disassemble this fork my self. I DO NOT want to screw it up .
Even though the fork looks tired, there are no major defects or dents etc. All the knobs / dials seem to work OK.
Lastly, is there a telescope repair in Los Angeles you know of? I do not want to ship this far away as it costs a fortune and is dangerous.
