Hi Marcel,

Thanks for the update, it is nice to get some feed back that verifies the above drawing, other than just my memory. It is also good to know the Motor Pinion tooth count, as to date I have not counted this. My own mill from Austria was manufactured in1996. I was told it was one of the last to be produced, how true that is I do not know.

I learned a lot in this thread about this FB2 and clones. Love it.

I made some pics to share in an album img_20200929_203025.jpg

Since I opened up my mill a few times and the gasgets are getting worse a drawing PDF of the top gasket would be nice. the motor gasget is a simple one. 113x113mm square with a hole of 108mm and 4 6.5mm holes 98mm square

Graham has kindly sent me a PDF with a drawing of the gasket seal to upload. I changed the name to make the link simpler.

You can access it here:

Thanks Graham,

Hi Derek,

I am glad you like this post, and good luck with the modifications. I have certainly learnt a few things from other contributors regarding the clones.
