    It was quite difficult when I tried with dykem layout fluid too.

    Anyway I was wondering about checking the backlash, I read that you can use a lead or tin wire between the gear teeth and then...

    Trying another paint, some yellow oil paint in a tube, much thicker this. Didn't go on well using the foam though, trying a brush instead and attempting a pattern. I put an ER-32 collect in the taper...

    It's pretty thick, perhaps not toothpaste thick, feels like grease with a color to it, maybe some oil added too. Definitely does not dry. I left the stuff from earlier on the gears but it had not...

    I understand what you mean, but I don't think it will work to block the drive gear because there are several other gears between that which will introduce their own backlash. I would need to be able...

    I don't know how to measure backlash, how is it done? When they measure backlash in the car videos they have access to the gears. I don't however since it's all enclosed.

    And can the other gear...

    I've watched that video before. The stuff he uses looks completely different to mine, his also looks to have dried somewhat, I thought these where supposed to be non drying compounds. I'll wipe...

    It wasn't really possible to put this on any thinner, it would be see through then. So I assumed it was meant to go on thicker. Maybe this stuff isn't any good, but googling around it seems people...

    Mine did have a lot of aluminum shavings, but you can see this when draining it of old oil. Working on the gearbox is something of a PITA so I wouldn't do it again unless I had to.

    I have a question though... is stainless steel a requirement for a shim washer, or would brass suffice?

    The part that wasn't needed was the small sheet metal part which acted as a scraper. I think you will want the whole tray. It holds the felt guards and protects the long gear and gearbox underneath...

    Measured the ones in my machine and they seem to be an odd size, 36 x 42 x 0.5 mm, the shaft of the bevel gear is 35mm so that could probably work too, but closest I've found is 35 x 45 mm

    I believe I have the same two manuals as you do, a 1950s and a 1960s version. To me both versions say bearing oil for this (points 10/11 and 12/13 in the newer manual).

    The older manual says to...

    Hey does anyone know why the Deckel Manual specifies the reservoir under the Z-axis nut should be bearing oil (gear box oil I assume) instead of way oil?

    I understand that you only use gearbox oil...

    Yes it should have a horizontal head, not sure if it has the lead screw for it though. You commented on this one in the for sale thread when I linked the for sale ad earlier on.
