    Paint Stripper Bucket?

    Super Clean is a commercial cleaner/degreaser. It is similar to Purple Power, Simple Green, etc., often used as a cleaning medium in ultrasonic cleaners. I thought Castrol used to make it, but is is listed now as Super Clean brands, LLC. I didn't see you are in commiefornia, you probably...

    Paint Stripper Bucket?

    You said small decorative items? How small? Some Super Clean and an ultrasonic cleaner will strip most paint in 1/2 hour or so.

    New to me Harig 618 Auto Step, new way oil pump not stong enough to move oil

    If I am reading the wiring diagram correctly, the only things on these machines that are on primary voltage is the spindle and hydraulic pump. Everything else runs off the transformer.

    Biax BL40 green scraper

    I don't know what power grid you have in Slovenia, but check that the Hz and Voltage input from your utility supplier match your Biax. You never mentioned what you paid, but even if you paid $2000 you can expect a 30 year old project. These things go for well over $4000 new. If it was me I...

    New to me Harig 618 Auto Step, new way oil pump not stong enough to move oil

    If I understand the parts breakdown correctly there's a filter screen on the assembly that installs onto the pump discharge. If that filter screen is plugged with swarf then it would essentially strangle the output of the pump. This would explain why both of your pumps are having issues. I've...

    New to me Harig 618 Auto Step, new way oil pump not stong enough to move oil

    How long have you let it pump? Like jbacc says, it may take several minutes to make it to the top of the column. The oil looks like the correct Harig oil. Where did you source it?

    Harig 618 Autostep III, Teflon ways, is this correct

    I found the photos of when I had my 618 Hydraulic apart. My teflon isn't in the best shape, but this should give you an idea of what it looks like. Sorry it took me so long to locate this photo, hopefully you find this useful.

    New to me Harig 618 Auto Step, new way oil pump not stong enough to move oil

    The return passages on mine were fouled with a waxy buildup from someone using the wrong way oil. The flex line goes up to a distribution tube on top of the column where it goes to the column way surfaces. Like Bob said, make sure that isn't obstructed and that you aren't hooked up to the...

    Harig 618 Autostep III, Teflon ways, is this correct

    I have a 618 hydraulic with teflon ways. The teflon is supposed to be on both the flat and the vee ways. Sorry to say it, but your teflon looks pretty tough, the vee way that still has some left the teflon is lifting on the left side of the photo. On my machine the teflon is a good 1/8"-3/16"...

    New Starrett cardboard boxes for old tools?

    Thanks for the input everyone. I knew when I posted this I needed to contact Starrett, it is the only way I will get what I'm after. I had heard before that they were not the most amicable to deal with, so it is hopeful to hear the contrary. I have found that I have better luck when I reach...

    New Starrett cardboard boxes for old tools?

    I have several Starrett tools that I have acquired or bought second hand. Some of these the original cardboard boxes are absolutely beat, yet the tools are completely serviceable. I would really like if I could source some gently used or preferably new boxes. Is is possible to get replacement...

    Abene VHF-3 milling machine and Harig Super 618 surface grinder

    I have interest in the column light off the Harig 618 if it doesn't sell. Looks like this isn't set up for coolant, is it? What is the mag chuck and controller? This unit located in Maine?

    WTB L0 Lathe Chuck Hook Spanner

    Posting a follow up on this. I have been in contact with Walter, he sent me a print to verify my spindle nose size. He has a wrench packed and on my way. Thanks!

    WTB 10EE Midwest area preferred. VFD converted acceptable.

    What size are you looking for? A used machinery dealer listed one nearby a few days ago. I have some tooling I need to pick up from there so I wouldn't mind taking a look at it.
