Thank you to all the replies and advise .. I will follow certainly look through the you tube for hints before I start scraping
Can someone advise how to perform the scraping process in matching two sliding surfaces?
Also, why is this method used ? the machines used to grind a lathes bed would or at least I thought create a suitably smooth uniform finish, yet the process of rubbing blue onto the saddles and use a scraper to fine tune the mating surfaces is still necessary.
|Thread: Myford super lever collet chuck|
Could someone kindly send me a short description preferably with some pics advising how to install the lever type collet chuck and how the lever is supposed to function in opening and closing for changing the collect .
|Thread: Bridgeport Series 1 Mill Feed Box|
Can someone identify how the pick feed works on my Bridgeport .
Also, I got the picture of the worm gear used to adjust the angle of the head from the manual Clive sent me; my machine does not have this gear and the internal gear although graunched is still present. I would appreciate it if someone has such a gear that they can measure up and send me a drawing so that I can have one made up.
I have to smile, yes the box does carry a serious amount of weight.
Thank you all for the very useful input. Clive I have sent a mail requesting the 1966 files please.
I am in the process of restoring the feedbox of what I am told to be a series 1 BP Mill.
Can anyone kindly assist with a drawing for this feedbox which is made up of predominantly gears.
The X- Axis lead screw feeds into the top of it through fairly thick bearings. Although I can find the replacement for the bearings currently in the feedbox I am told some are metric and some imperial ? The lead screw has quite some wear in the center so I will make a new one but I just want to check what the bearings ID/OD should be because the machine is quite old so I am concerned someone may have used the incorrect bearings and just modified the shaft to make it fit.
Legible drawings for the feedbox or for the entire machine would be really be great .
|Thread: Cross slide gib question|
Thank you all for the pointers and advice . I most appreciate the information and advice offered by all and will put a plan into action based thereupon.
I have recently purchased the slides for my lathes cross slide. This slide is adjusted with screws on the body of the slide to make the movement of the slide secure.
The original slide in the machine has angled holes at the same interval of the adjusting screws , I assume these angled holes keep the slide in position in time as the slide gets moved forwards and backwards.
Question: how do I have holes drilled into this angled slide guide ? or must the be sparked ?
