A number of posts have been made concerning the lock for changing bits. I used the lock twice, and when I went back to do it again the pin can't locate the hole. Just took out the pin/spring and see that the hole has dropped down enough that the pin can't go into it. Even pushing up on the bit does not bring it high enough to engage the pin, it's still blocking about 1/4 of the pin diameter when I have it pushed up as far as I can. Managed to change the bit by putting a ice pick into the hole, but this doesn't fix the problem long term on a 3 month old machine.

The CDs are available and are being sent out on request. Please email your mailing address and serial number to request a CD to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add "Images CD" to the subject line to be sure the request is filtered properly.
Rick, I will ask oliverman to address your question as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay.
Bob, I am not aware of an upgrade to the forum. It could possibly be the company that hosts the forum that will be doing some upgrading to their system. We will check into this.
We do apologize for the slow response time. We do try to check here often and are working on a better internal system to be notified of new questions when they are posted. You are welcome to call us directly as well as email questions to email@example.com.
We appreciate all the wonderful members that answer questions for other users! We are happy that it this is becoming a great online community.
I do have the second version of drawings that came out from Oliver this year, and have used them quite extensively. However, I appear to be inept at using Photoshop Elements to achieve anything useable that is not part of the pictures on the CD. Does anyone have any sources where I can buy additional pictures for use with the 1013 - I can then incorporate them into projects as needed.
I do not have photoshop but I use GIMP which is a free program, to make my images. You can cut and extract the images from the background and insert or combine with other images, works great. I think you will find that any other sources for the grayscale images are just way to expensive to be practical to use. It took me a while to learn but I can now make most any image I wish to carve.
Yes figuring out how to make grey scale images can make you almost pull your hair out but once you get it you can go hog wild. Go to this site cnc4free.org and go to tutorials and download the file at the bottom of the page.
