Thread: Worn Myford

Why not file/scrape the guide shear until the end with the 0.004" wear is back in contact, use unworn rear face on saddle as a reference and some micrometer blue on the bed to show where to remove material, when you have contact along the face do a light scrape in the middle to hollow out the shear, this should eliminate any rock. Just make sure everything is clean as the iron on these machines is very soft and easily scored. (And scraped) . Nothing to lose everything to gain.


Thread: Tailstock too high on Harrison M250, how to lower?

When clocking from headstock to tailstock error will be half clock reading,

So your tailstock barrel is 0.003" or0.0003"high depending whether clock TIR is 0.15 mm or0.015mm.

Also this check does not account. Which way the tailstock is pointing !

Try HIGH PEAK steels Glossop Derbyshire, They will quote for an off cut.

 centre line of rear axlebox , distance to the centre line in question , at the top of the drawing is4 1/4 BUT lower down just above the hornslot the distance is 4 5/16  ?
my question is . Is this centre line the centre of the top cut out  7/8 deep as it does not look to be in the centre .
chassis bracket on page 675
plan view why not put a dimension to show how far the outside of the bracket is from the frame (sorted this one by doing my own drawing ,full size) !

started cutting out frames ,drawings have missing dimensions .
at the rear of frame centre line ofrear axlebox to centre line of what i dont know,
I thought this was the centre of the shape at the top of the frame but visually
the (centre line) looks way off centre .
that's when work on this project stopped.
I look on this website regularly but no postings since shortly after the article started.
Iam beginning to think that other people started this project but after they have seen the
host of drawing errors, missing dimensions, (always the crucial one's)
and have given up
