Merrill, sure you can make a square hole in metal and rather easily. BTDT many times. Drill a hole whose diameter is the same as the side of the square. Thine with a square file simple file out the corners. Doesn’t take as long as you would imagine.

I’ve never seen a motorized carriage without a lock shaft. All of mine have had it. At the end, quality control suffered.

While I think the lock shaft on the Fox Supershops carriage is threaded left and right, I don’t see why a right hand thread in a wedge block wouldn’t work. Haven’t tried it, though. Worse comes to worse, use a hose clamp on the tube. It’s remarkable what they will restrain.

Thanks for all the pictures!
