    Default Hardinge HF-6 Bar Feed

    Good morning,

    We have this Hardinge bare feed. Some parts are still available for it from Hardinge. I'm looking for a little more info about its mechanics than Hardinge can give me. It was obsoleted in 2005. Does anyone have a working unit? Is there a similar device out there? It's used on a hand screw machine.

    Thank you,

    Payson.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Your bar feed is a bit more sophisticated than ours. Linda at Hardinge is sending me some new cups and o-rings. I took it apart and swabbed it all out yesterday. My only questions now are:
    1. have you bothered to change the bearings in the front of the pusher,
    2. is there an o-ring anywhere in that front section?

    Best regards,

    Payson.

    I've never done anything to it. In fact, since I got a CNC lathe with barloader I don't even use it anymore.

    I'd have to look for the O-ring. It's in storage . Give me a little bit so I call pull it down.

    No O-ring on the pusher. There is an O-ring in the end of the main body. I assume to hold the reducing bushing in.
