|Thread: Dismantling Vertex HV6 Rotary Table|
Hi Brian wood I’m looking at your photo as I have a vertex HV6 brand new never been out the box til now & the winding handles missing, so will make one. Just can’t make out from your photo the handle & the washer that holds it on, it as slots in it I assume as the shaft is flat on either side with a 4 mm key placed in. Would you take a photo of the washer & handle on there own, with the collar separated away please.
|Thread: Jones & Shipman surface grinder drive unit|
Thank you Pete, Al have you read this?
Regards RobPete Rimmer you say you had one like this, could you pull the grinding wheel toward you & it would spring back say a mm or two.
Tony as only parts manuals not Sevice manuals.
We rang Hardinge no answer Mark.
No answer 😕
we have two Joan & Shipman 540 surface grinders, the older one ( with a counter weight in the back) has an oil seal leake at the spnindle so we need to replace it. We have the gearbox drive case off the machine but no idea how we take the shaft out! Also how to adjust the end float! Please see photos below.
