    Wow, good thing I picked up repairing cast iron on my L&S. The coolant pump in the K&T wasn't working. Found a sheared drive pin on the pump input shaft. Pulled the pump and found this:

    Cleaned it up, and found a broken tooth on the input gearing. So, I got to play some more:

    She be pumpin, yo.

    Strange pump setup. No actual impeller on a shaft at the bottom in a housing. Just a loose fitting gear at the top, which surprisingly (to me) creates enough suction/force to actually work.

    Yeah, she's running cutting oil now. Out of curiosity, when you say "oil", are you specifically meaning cutting oil, or a coolant/cutting fluid? Curious about what you're running on your K&T's.

    Oil, cutting OIL.....Nothing that has water in it...Sulphur based stinking cutting oil....I have, in a pinch, used hypoid gear oil when I could get it for free...Cheers; Ramsay 1

    Reason being that's what it was basically designed for, and that's what she wants?

    Because, as you can see, the fluid that was being run on the B&S is definitely water based.
    I just drained, filtered, and replaced what was in both machines for now, just to make sure the pumps were working properly. Didn't want t waste new stuff, and I'm glad I didn't, because I would have put in either liquid ice HPX or qualchem 251c.

    Where "what she WANTS" isn't the mill itself so much as the "era".

    The summation of RPM, feeds, metals commonly being worked (Iron & steel mostly) annnnd.. the cutters in use of the day. HSS, even HCS.

    Carbide'ize it, work shiney-wood or Copper's alloys? - dif'rent "wants".

    One-man shop, most machine-tools are used one-at-a-time, and with longish idle periods in between, each machine otherwise "fermenting" varnish, biologicals, & such.

    A wheel-up off-machine cutting fluid/coolant service rig wih scavenging, settling, filtering pumping and fresh make-up to the recycled fluid supply of interest?

    They can cut the cost, disposal/treatment nuisance and general maintenance and service headaches for a whole tribe - or "treehouse" - full of machine-tools.

    CAVEAT: Select a cutting OIL for longevity, low hassle, a cutting FLUID (emulsion) the same, and neither one will ever be "optimal", all work, all circumstances.

    So long as you are not in slender-margin, volume production, same part, same alloy, challenging cycle-time (CNC's world...) "optimal" isn't the primary driver.

    "Good enough", always to-hand if needed at all, low cost, low hassle, and low disposal burden can be more valuable.

    Or so I believe. Never did like cutting steels "dry".

    YMMV!

    Nice tall ceiling like, that?

    Show us what varieties of trees it is that you be raising, other side.



    Got all stove up, hired me a guy to weed-wack my place. Shudda been more selective.

    He got rid of 12 Blue Rug Junipers in a staggered dual row .... figuring they was uncommonly well-regimented weeds..

    Both of these machines kick ass.
