Thread: Sieg SX2.7 Quill Fine Feed
10/09/2018 20:17:03

I have the Sieg SX2.7 from ArcEuro - what am I missing: when I release the captive drawbar it drives the quill downwards and doesn't release the MT3 taper?

If I tighten the quill so that I'm in fine feed it still drives the quill down and doesn't release the MT3

The only option I've found is to use the old fashioned method of releasing the drawbar a small amount and then using a mallet to shock the taper into releasing

I'm building a steam engine that has been converted to run on petrol. What I'm not sure about is how well it will run using eccentric cam drives?

Has anybody tried this before?
