    Need help with VALENITE MCLNR-12-4 tool holder

    So I grabbed a hex wrench and you are right, rotating the lock pin clamped the insert in place. So I presume the clamp is there for backup or heavy cutting loads. Thanks for the information.

    Need help with VALENITE MCLNR-12-4 tool holder

    I have a new (to me) Valenite MCLNR 12-4 turning tool I purchased from Ebay. I did not notice that the clamp and screw that retain the insert were not included with the part. So far my search has not turned up an answer so I'm hoping for some help. I could fab something, but if I can buy the...

    Victor 1640 headstock drain plug - Where is it?

    There is a protruding hex head right next to the shifter lever. It is mostly hidden in the picture. That is the gear box drain plug according to the manual.

    Victor 1640 headstock drain plug - Where is it?

    There is a plug located in that spot on mine, and I was guessing that might be it. The electronics box is just to the right of the plug.

    Victor 1640 headstock drain plug - Where is it?

    The back of the headstock and gear box are completely covered by the electronics box so I don't think it is there. It better not be... That would be a poor design. The gear box drain is correctly marked in the manual. It is right next to the 1-8 speed selector lever.

    Victor 1640 headstock drain plug - Where is it?

    So I have a used Victor 1640 that I am setting up in my shop. It's in place, wired, and working. Next is cleaning it up and changing out the gear oils just in case. I found the FILL plug for the headstock, but the DRAIN plug is not where the owner's manual said it should be; the manual quality...

    Need help identifying Baldor motor (ilder for phase converter)

    OK, follow up... I heated the new bearings at 200F for about 24 hours to expand them and they both installed easily onto the room temperature rotor shafts. The larger 55mm bore bearing slid right on; the 40mm bore bearing needed a few light taps on the inner race using a sleeve tool I 3D...

    Need help identifying Baldor motor (ilder for phase converter)

    Thanks. Yeah with just a washer for a shim I could see that being an issue. It sure would not take much wear to throw the preload off. I'm going to remove both seals and retainers, and even though I'll probably have this motor forever, I'm going to remove the grease fittings and put a 'no...

    Circling back to this comment... Are you talking about adjusting the bearing preload by shimming? This one has a wave washer for the bearing preload.

    Need help identifying Baldor motor (ilder for phase converter)

    OK one more related question. The bearings I found are sealed and I am inclined to leave them this way. After checking the bearing calculations per the manufacturer guidelines (SKS) the predicted service life of the bearing is good for 40 hours a week for 25 years. This is well beyond what I...
