    I've got one of these made by Helios. Nice tool. It still has the original inspection sheet showing that the errors in the dividing circle are 10 seconds of arc. The instruction sheet claims that...

    I have a Logan 10" (photos here for the curious).

    I would quick check the bed to make sure it's not twisted. That's possible if this is one of the models with a countershaft assembly behind and...

    Dear DMD,

    IMO it would be poor design if one head was used for reference marks and the other one for the quadrature scales. But you can easily test your theory. Just cut out the power to the...

    Hi Nigel,



    I remembered the felt strip in the back but not in the front. I don't have any good photos of the front but dug these out. This is my 1964 FP2, number 422.

    Here's the back, you...

    By "transverse" direction, do you mean the long left-right travel direction which normally has the hydraulic feed? I suppose that's right, since the other direction is normally called the...

    Deckel had the good sense to use standard bearings here. Good quality replacements cost ~10 Euros each online, so it makes sense to replace any which are not in very good shape.

    It looks fantastic! I think this is one of the traditional approaches. The longer way is ground and the shorter one is scraped to match with half-moon oil pockets added as the final step.

    What...

    One of these days (more likely, one of these years) I am going to ditch the electrical cabinet from my FP2 and replace it with two VFDs. One will be for the regular drive motor built into the base,...

    Kudos for your pluck and perseverance. I think the shaft can probably be saved, let's see what others advise. If you can get it built up with some welding material, I can put it on my cylindrical...

    It's possible to get inch arbors in Germany, but not nearly as easy as metric ones.

    Do you have a cylindrical grinder? It's easy to grind a 27mm arbor down to 1 inch (25.4mm). You could make up a...

    I think the standard sizes are 16mm, 22mm, 27mm, 32mm and 40mm. Which sizes do you want? I think I have one extra that you can buy from me.

    I am probably wrong but this picture makes me wonder if the casting might be cracked under the paint. Or perhaps it is just "steps" from the casting pour. Is that a bead of silicone rubber or...
