    Federal Formscan 3100 User Manual

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone have the manual or any experience with a Federal Formscan 3100. I recently got one at auction but I have no idea how to use it and constantly getting the following error even if the table is moving fine. Everything seem fine in the diagnostic page so I think it...

    Coolant Tank and Pump

    Hi All, I recently squired a Brown & Sharper Micromaster 510 that seem to have most of the guard in place to run flood coolant but it is missing the coolant tank and pump. I feel that I need to at least try flood coolant. One option would be those tank and pump on ebay...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    Today I had the chance to play a bit with the grinder. The first task was grinding the chuck That first attempt was pretty bad but the second one was a bit better: I then play around with correcting some AliExpress ER32 collect block. I am pretty happy with the surface finish I am getting...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    I used this bearing vibration calculator for 6203 bearing and there is no match for the 190hz. Brandenberger message inspired me to simply reinstall the motor and see if this is good enough. Wow, the difference is incredible ! I can barely feel any vibration on the wheel guard now ! I moved my...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    I will definitively take the time to read this, it sound really interesting ! So I went ahead and drilled some holes in the pulley to try to balance it. I knew the unbalance would be mostly cause by the keyway so I went with a simple 3 holes at 120 design. It look pretty ugly because I don't...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    I finally had time to make more progress: The motor was re-assembled with some new bearing, it now sound way better Here is the vibration without the pulley And with the pulley I am quite concern by this 190hz peak, which actually have a value over 180. If someone have any insight as to...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    Hi Conrad, Yes, I saw your page, this was my main inspiration on how to balance the wheel. Thank you for this amazing write up ! My plan to balance the motor is to balance it with the pulley installed as a single unit. I would really like to do a 2-plane balance job but I don't really have the...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    I went ahead and remove the motor. Running it by itself, I was not happy the amount of vibration coming out of it and the noise it was making. At first, I thought it might just be all the gunk in the fan, but removing the fan did not change anything. I now have the motor fully apart and...

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    It is hard to say exactly how fast I am running the table. The best I can say is: about what seem average from the youtube videos I watched. I have a old linear scale laying around somewhere, I might try to hook it up the the setup later on to see if I can measure the speed.

    Micromaster 510 Surface Finish and Vibration

    Hi all, I recently got my hand on my first surface grinder, a Brown & Sharp 510. After doing some initial testing, I was really unhappy with the surface finish I was getting: I am getting a lot of "wave" in line with the Y axis. After reading a lot on around the internet and on this post, I...

    Graziano Sag 12 Taper Attachment "Screw"

    I am looking for some picture or dimensions of the original "screw" part that goes between and the slide and the "way clamp" on the Sag 12 taper attachment. It is missing on mine and I want to make a new one as close as the original as possible. Thank you
