Cincinnati Cinova mill feed loss question
I have actually two questions in regard to a Cincinnati Cinova 205-12, 1963 vintage mill I've had for some years.
1. The 3 or 4 lowest feed rates are inactive and although I have the manuals there is little to determine which shaft [of 3] is responsible for the lower speed range.
The feed mechanism is essentially a gear box with hydraulic gear shift so unless the gear is missing entirely it may be a hydraulic problem, any advice of diagnosis before digging into the feed box, which is not for the faint of heart.
2. There is a fair bit of "mechanical gear noise" once the spindle clutch is engaged, oil levels are correct and spindle doesn't run above warm, is this usual for this type of machine ?
Any advise most welcome.
May have t drop your gear box and see what is going on.
