    Okuma LR15 upper turret cross slide

    Okuma LR15 upper turret cross slide

    Hi, my Okuma had a hard life before I took possession of it. Long story short, I realized today the cross slide is cracked. Now in search of a replacement. Figured my best bet would be to grab one off another one being junked for parts or whatever. Also, if you have the X axis big keeper (on the...

    Who owns/supports Abene now?

    Heard back from SMT company, which basically said they don't support the machine at all due to age (1970 for mine). Couldn't provide any info, parts diagram, etc, for the B600 head either.

    Abene VHF 3 Inspection

    Nice find! I'm right up the road from you in Maine, and have a couple myself (1970 VHF-3, and 1951 VHF-2 with foot-mounted spindle motor). Have you found the S/N yet and determined year? S/N vs Yr list: Abene Milling Machines

Of course, the only source I can find that will ship to US that has an inch set of collets, is on backorder... sent them an email asking ETA for another set available... It's either that, or really...
