I have a G0716 drum sander which has a height capacity of 3”. I have noticed though that on the elevation leadscrew, there are a number of nuts at the top which restrict the height.

When the motor is at its highest, there is still at least 1.5” available on the drum support on the left hand side.

Has anyone ever tried removing those nuts to increase the high capacity?
