    As title please I'm new to frameing and the forum so please be patient

    I won a Morso off eBay and dident know what I was buying to be honest bought it off a lady who claimed she had never used it seems to cut nice from what I have tried

    I've found the ruler is missing the part that fits the clamp if that makes sence?? and would also like a 2nd stop please kind regards and thanks in advance Nick

    For some reason it won't let me upload photos I don't know why

    Nick, You have not disclosed you are UK based, so people here will just assume you are in the USA
    This is mainly a USA / Canada forum.
    May I suggest that as you are based in UK, probably a lot better to keep this sort of question on The Framers Forum.
    There are plenty of people on there who will help you find the parts that are missing.

    Many thanks I didn't know this USA thank you for the heads up

    Some one off there pointed me over here thank you for the advice

    I've been a member on there a couple of weeks and to be honest I don't seem to get replys on that forum but will keep trying cheers

    You are unlikely to find a second hand version of what you need, anyone with a morso will need the part, if they are selling the machine it will go with it, they don't often break to the point of selling the bits off, Lion should be able to help you.
    As for not getting replys off of the FF most of the people who would have answered you have been banned for various reasons, leaving others not really wanting to post, David suggested you post here about your Fletcher cutter as they are more popular this side of the pond than in the UK, most of us there have the Keencut version.
    I am UK based and will help you if I can,

    Splistop - I was looking around on here and I found some old posts. I researched and there is a company in Little Rock, Arkansas - if you don't have any luck over there. It is TechMark - you can email them at info@tech-mark.com. I hope you have luck over there. Don't be afraid to ask us!

    Talk to lion about sharpening the blades. Odds are good that they need to be sharpened, in fact if they don't need sharpening I would be shocked.

    The morso chopper is a workhorse you should never need to replace anything but will constantly want to sharpen those blades. Check back here for help and tips on both the 3100 and the morso. You will be learning words like compo crushing and chipout in no time!

    Lion I think have a genuine morso blade sharpening machine as do mainline in Nottingham, but i would say that lion was your best bet being so local.
