Thread: Align Power Drawbar Problem
26/10/2020 21:50:15

How do you lube the air hammer / device internally. My impact gun was getting low on power & it just needed the internals lubricated. I have an oiler on that airline now & have no further bother. Or am i on the wrong track here. Sorry in advance if so.

I have the same Mill. I t took me quite a while to get the tram right. The problem with the light is it only has the bolts at one side. When i nipped the bolts down it rotated the head. Eventually by taking the head one particular way round by a few thou too far & then nipping up i got it spot on. It has never moved since. Hope you sort out the problem Bob.

Did you get the screws removed. I just saw this ad for a screw removal kit. Looks pretty good.

Thread: The power of Steam

He mentioned in his commentary of the clutches being engaged or something like that. Not sure what he meant.

Would it be so they could stop on the hill if the line broke. ??

Ah the dreaded clutch. A friend of mine was recently brazing one that had cracked. No parts available for the MK1. Not sure if i saw somewhere that someone had made one from a Moped front drum brake.

Well a simple thank you would have sufficed.

On youtube as usual watching steam engines tonight. Saw this one of a tractor pulling 35 tons up a hill. Amazing power.

Sorry, I am not sure what you mean by "main support bar", is it the part that supports the vertical head?

Which model of TS is it?

Edited By old mart on 25/10/2020 15:57:10

Equally confused. picture would help.

The size of the thread on mine was , across the threads 1.66mm or 0.0655in. Although mine is a Mercer England make. So could be different.

I did exactly the same thing. I got 2 sharp pointed scribers & at 180 degrees to each other managed to with a magnifying glass , twist the broken piece out.

I repaired it by using a short piece of a small drill bit & bonded it in. It has worked ok since.

Not sure of the answer to this one. The MK1 & MK2 have different clutches, but don't know if the casting is different for the counter arm. I could take some close up pictures of my Mk 2 super 7B if you want. Could post them on here for you.


If you P.M your email address i can send you the full parts manual in PDF form. I think it is for my model , but you could compare with it.

That's all i do , a quick tap on a hard surface usually does the job.


Thread: ML7 cross-slide and compound slide bearing upgrades

I was having issues with my cross slide with play. Not sure if you saw my youtube vid addressing this, without any needle roller bearings. I do prattle on a bit but you will see the basics of the problem i had & managed to fix.

I am pretty much the same as you there Andrew. See lots of questions about eastern machines & never having owned or even used one, better just read the posts.
