    Red face Jones & Shipman 540 Cross feed

    Hi All,

    I have just acquired a 540,
    Nice used machine, all functions correctly, except the cross slide in 1 direction.
    The table moves out fine, but when i turn the switch on the feed wheel, it doesn't seem to want to feed in.

    Any ideas gratefully received before i start dismantling it

    I suggest you post a photo so we can help. Is this an early-model 540, with completely mechanical cross feed? Or a later one with electrical cross feed?

    Hi

    I have just taken a couple of pics.
    The model is a 60090.
    It is an early one with a mechanical crossfeed.

    You haven't tripped out the hydraulic shut off at the end of travel have you? There's a cam on the r/h side of the table that will activate the shut off lever
