    I saved that photo too ... as I recall Reliable referred to it as a "CNC" mill...

    Arrived today.
    Just for Don-- backlash X ~0.006" ~Y 0.007"

    It's filthy but all there. The Sony DRO is a replacement-- The Sony scale is mounted under the table but the original scale looks to still be inside the table. The DRO has a Northrup sticker on it which is different that the company that sold the machine (not the ebay broker). It'll be a bit before I can get it under power.

    Anyone have an digital version of the FP3 parts book for this vintage machine?

    Matt, without photos it never happened. Post some before you clean it up. That will soften the blow for your friends who missed out. Cheers, Bruce

    Matt... original paint ? Sounds like paydirt just from the backlash figures.

    What docs do you need you think
    Electrical diagram for sure What voltage is the machine and what is the controle voltage
    Perhaps I can help

    No, it has been repainted. Not a horrible job but not great either.

    Sony DRO, surprisingly, powers up but shows errors on all the axis. Screen has some extreme burn in. In needs clean up and the usual items, bellows an a few bits and bobs here and there.

    Peter,
    I have not tried to power up the machine yet. I may not get to that for a few weeks. I haven't looked at the control voltage yet.

    I'd like a parts manual to start with. I may ping you about electrical when I get to looking at it. Anything you have would be much appreciated.

    Machine was built in 1980 and is a 440V machine. Not sure if it makes more sense to get a transformer or swap parts out. I belive the main motor would have to get rewound to run on 220V as I believe these are single voltage motors.

    I run lots of 440V machines off transformers. Why would you not use a transformer? What could be easier?

    Mount the transformer up high. On the wall or hung from the ceiling. I see that in factories all the time. Did it in my own shop.
