    Probably good enough, but not to manufacturer spec. P4 is higher precision than P5, it corresponds to ABEC-7.

    According to GBS, all SKF bearings under 52mm OD are P5 precision. They sent me what looks like a scanned page from a catalog with this table:

    Precision bearings - where to get them?

    Hey y'all,

    I'm replacing the spindle bearings in my Deckel clone single-lip cutter grinder. Per manufacturer info, the front one should be a 6003 2RS P4 (double sealed). I've been using a local...

    When I replaced the conduit from the electrical cabinet to my Deckel FP2, a member here pointed me to Panzergewinde. The fittings on my 1966 FP2 and the fittings on the new conduit I bought were both...

    Naw, nothing of any urgency happens in my basement hobby shop :). Also it was my own damn fault to use DHL rather than UPS to save EUR20.

    Not to hijack this thread, but it looks like my parcel just cleared the Atlantic ocean cruise. It was posted on March 5th, and it's taken until April 9th to do the crossing. Just a few more days for...

    There's only one shear pin in the FP2, and if it shears it should disable both drive and rapid feeds. It's easy to get at, just open the door and you'll see it down there. From what I understand it's...

    I bought an OZ462 collet chuck from Franz Singer around this time last month. It was shipped via DHL, which usually takes about 10 days to Montreal, Canada. Well, this time it went by sea, and it's...

    There are two ways to do this that I know of:

    A capacitive voltage doubler.
    A boost converter, perhaps doubling as a power factor correction.

    The former is possibly a "simple" modification...

    That's true, but surely you're not advocating to leave the ground floating?

    With the ground connected, the RCD will trip first on any fault and the operator will spared that 30mA buzz. Under just...

    Looks like you've fixed it already, but just to stress that the earth connection is critical for the safety of the operator. This bonds all the exposed (and internal) metalwork of the machine to...

    On the photo it looks like the ground terminal has been bridged over to the neutral - you'll presumably want to remove that link when you hook up the neutral.

    I'm referring to features below the spindle nose, where a tool changer would "grab" the holder. The "old-style" Kolch and Deckel collet adapters have no such features.

    Fabricating an FP2 lower chip pan?

    Hey y'all,

    My FP2 leaves me little dribbles of way oil on the floor. Mostly this is a nuisance on the operator's side where I get drips from the Z-axis handwheel. The oil does seem to make its way...

    OZ415 (aka OZ16),
    OZ462 (aka OZ25) and
    OZ467 (aka OZ32).
    Looks like they go to 16, 25, 32 mm respectively....
