    Fadal vmc15 alternatives?

    A Fadal VMC15 XT weighs in at around 6500lbs. A used Haas you could find but good luck finding parts for an older one and any kind of support. Fadal parts are still available and has a big following. I have seen FADALS going up in price as hobby folks are stepping up to the bigger machines. The...

    Fadal vmc15 alternatives?

    What it’s worth the Fadal VMC15 XT would be a good machine but be prepared to do some work on one. I have found there is not perfect one for cheap. Do yourself a favor and take way covers off to inspect the rails. I found a cracked bearing truck on my Z axis which lead to even bigger issues. Jeff

    FADAL VMC15 XT Rebuild

    Started taking off the left side rail to prepare to put the new one side on. Makes me a little nervous as have never done this before. With a precision dial indicator should not be a problem. Put the new one on the left dial it in to the old one on the right. Once I get the left one dialed and...

    FADAL VMC15 XT Rebuild

    More pics of the adventure. This machine was so dirty and just plain worn out that I have had to take everything apart to revive it. I am not understanding how chips got where they did! When I got the machine in my shop and took the motor cover off it looked like someone coated it in oil let...

The seals I bought from Motionsource1 and the fit like a glove and are now new again for a fraction of the cost of new. Oh and by the way I used qtips to clean them out...
