    Deckel FP4 manual mill / newbie with simple questions

    Welcome to the world of scraping :) You sure will get plenty of practice on that machine. Investigate carefully and make good plans. I have the same machine and it is for sure well worth the effort BUT before scraping - go through the gearboxes, linkages and spindels and spindle bearings. If...

    Powell planer Operations

    Hi, not sure where and in what form to post this. Could be under rebuilding section as well but i think planer itself is more the "centerpiece" than the novice planer work. As i cant put videos here i added a youtube link feel free to subscribe if you want but that is not the point, I will try...

    rosenfors rfu milling machine

    Those are rare, quick look in swedish gives nothing. I think your best bet is Call Tonys and chat with them. Hopefully, and often, things can be resolved by a friendly call, shit happens to everyone time to time.

    Planing and Scraping a 36" KING-WAY Camel-Back Straight Edge

    Tyrone, Long time since, Its me and my planer we use. And it was really like the first real work piece we set up in a planer - ever. And the first real long run of it. That day was nerve wrecking. Jan Sverre is a brave man to put that casting on the table... One of the days positive outcome is...

    Need help making this cutting tool for the planer.

    That´s a more unusual one but I´d say it works in the same way as most goose/swan neck tools does. Under pressure the cutting edge lifts Out of the material reducing DOC rather than dig in to it due to having its "hinging point" in front of the cutting edge. Post #158 in this thread gives has a...

    This is why i need to learn to use turcite and hand scrape

    Marka, That´s one sweet Monarch, much smaller than I anticipated. You have received plenty good advices from most but one and you will be hosting an RK class. I´m not sure why you shy away from that short bed. Don´t worry about it, once you´ve held that class you´ll be right on top of it.

    This is why i need to learn to use turcite and hand scrape

    Do the bed first. At least check it and decide ok / not ok. Not ok = fix it. As mentioned before the quill is likely to be worn as well. One way it can be done, fit the base to the ways, fit the base and the top. Make a new quill or clean up the old. Bore out the quill hole 0,2" oversize. Align...
