    Default Help with ID Deckel ? head stock cover

    Hi
    I bought this cover thinking / hoping that it would fit a Deckel FP3. It didn't unfortunately. I'd like to try and find out what machine it came from in hopes of trading or selling it. The pin size seems to be correct but the plastic cover is too wide.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Also looking for the right cover if anyone has one they can part with.
    Sorry if "head stock cover" is the wrong term.

    Thanks
    Andy

    Is the dovetail the correct size?

    I can't remember now but I think so.I will check when I'm back at the machine. The pin placement was too wide.

    I had just mounted the boring head on the FP3 mill and no one around today to help me remove it. So the photo is of the FP3NC with the cover slid into the dovetail (same size dovetail), seems like a perfect fit. The cover would not clear the male dovetail for the horizontal arbor support on the FP3NC. On the FP3 it would not clear the vertical head .

    Here is what it should look like:
    Not sure what that fits. Difference is the shape of the top at the pin side.
