    Is there any branding on the bearings? Metal stamps on the crank? Are the crank journals imperial or metric?

    That's not a compressor. Why would you need mechanically-driven exhaust valves on a compressor? In addition, if not for a magneto, what is the auxiliary drive for?

    Going back to the engine, what...

    It seems to share some cylinder characteristics with Henderson motorcycle engines from the teens, but the open cam is a real puzzler.

    Is there anything in the realm of high-production tombstone fixturing that would work? Carr-Lane, Destaco, Jergens, Abbott???

    Ross,

    Thanks for that. It would not be hard to implement on the Acieras because the Z handwheel is at the end of a long, hefty, and separate turned housing that could accommodate a spring-loaded...

    Oddly enough, the fraternal twin Acu-Rite DRO203 has buttons.

    I feel like an idiot for buying a DRO203 and a far less capable and pleasing Fagor 20i and paying almost exactly the same price. The...

    On both of my Acieras the table continues downward once set in motion, but they don't take off on their own from rest. The friction is so low, the table weight can back-drive the leadscrew....

    My opinion is $100-$150 would be fair. It looks rather worn but not beat up. PM, rather than a thrift store, would be a good place to sell it.

    What is the circled black item for in the photo below? Horizontal quill? (It seems to be too far back from the headstock face for that, but maybe??)

    On mine, unlocked is when the tick mark points circumferentially, i.e., at 12:00. Properly locked is when the tick is between 3:00 and 6:00. Macit sells the cams and pins, and are well worth it if...

    I have a functional Fusion 360 (HSMWorks) post for Dialog 4. The problem with feeding a Dialog 4 with any CAM program is that the code chokes the control. You end up with lots of pauses as the...

    Guessing old-school pneumatic PID controls, like Moore Products used to make. I remember seeing those on fossil plants like PECO's Eddystone and PP&L's older Martins Creek units.

    A 0.010" runout at that amount of overhang seems perfectly reasonable for a milling arbor. I bet you can change the magnitude and direction quite a bit, just by bumping it with your fist. The arbor...

    I believe Alan Hantke still sells a DVD that includes the Dialog 4 manual and a whole lot more. His PM name is Wrench. He is an excellent resource for Euro machine info.

    On the FB-4, when you push, say, the upper Z button on the right, does the table or tool move "up?" (I realize that if the tool moves up, it is really the table that moves down.) On the FP2NC Dialog...

    Apart from the orange color, the DRO screen looks almost exactly like the one on the Acu-Rite DRO203 I just bought. Makes sense, since Heidenhain and Acu-Rite merged in 2009.

    No broaching is required. When I made my 10EE quill, I just milled an oval slot. I went in from both sides and met in the middle due to the depth/width.

    When listening to your video, I hear "normal" gear noise from a worn geartrain. It may be exacerbated by running with no load so the gear teeth can bounce off of each other. I have heard worse, like...
