    Please see post 39 in this thread.

    The cleaning process on the MC800H is almost all of the time spent, made worse by the fact I'm trying to make it as close to new condition as possible without...

    Update on that ball spline assembly:

    The ball retainer inside the unit cannot be removed without damaging it. THK uses a permanent adhesive to assemble both parts of the retainer. After several...

    The progress on the Maho has been unfortunately slow. When an assembly starts to become difficult when coming apart that is a good time to stop and give real thought as to how to proceed without...

    An update on the MC800H and the SL6B. Been working on both every day since my last post. The Mori is at my bay where I'm doing a run of long cycle parts so I'm working on it while machining. The...

    Good day everyone. Some progress on the MC800H:

    Working on the automatic tool changer arm assembly. Since it had been sitting the linear ways had surface corrosion and needed to be cleaned up.

    If the machine is as per the schematic then not only do you not need the neutral leg but you already have an isolation transformer in place that is providing it.

    Sorry for any digression. Someone...

    First, sorry for digging this old thread up.

    I felt it was important when I was looking for information about the Hitachi Seiki Ch250 specifically (I have been contemplating getting one) that...

    Hi Hardplates,

    I would first check if the Seimens drive takes a neutral line. If it doesn't then it is likely a non-issue.

    You probably already said... what is the input voltage to the machine...

    Hi Cameraman,

    Honestly I can't recommend a variable transformer because I've just used multiple transformers at progressively higher voltages using a bulb as a current restrictor. It works well...

    Hi, sorry I'm so very late to this party.

    I wanted to read through this whole thread in detail but due to time constraints I was forced to start skimming near the end.

    I read the words Phase...

    First, thanks everyone for your encouraging feedback!

    Chuck, I see I didn't touch on the tool setter question: I don't know if I'll bother. Touching off lathe tooling isn't all that frequent, at...

    Hi David,

    You seem to be on the right track. Just make sure you pull those nozzles and then you should be able to press out the spindle with it's two angular contact bearings from above and it...

    Hi Chuck,

    So far the Mori appears to have very high build quality and well thought out design just from working on it. We'll see how well it runs once this is all finished. As for how it will...

    Yes, this machine is more of a victim to extreme filth neglect rather than rust or grit. I prefer a machine that is covered in greasy and oily goo because once you do get through all the mess there...

    I can add info about the Mori in this thread, it's technically not the right exact section but Mori is part of "DMG Mori" now so it's close enough. The title of this thread is broad enough to allow...

    This is just my opinion but the layers in the board have little impact on the difficulty replacing parts as compared to whether or not the board uses through hole components vs surface mount. When...

    If I had this machine I would pick up a Siemens or Heidenhain control and put it on. Analog drives are not a big problem, and what is nice about those Indramats is that the tuning of the drives was...

    Thanks everyone for your supportive comments.

    I would have had Maho Sr. done by now if it wasn't for other machines taking priority. Ever since I picked up Maho Jr. I haven't been as desperate to...

    I'll take these machines off your hands for $1k ea. I can fix them up and I have work that fits within their envelope. I like that control as I can do quite a bit of tweaking to it and rebuild the...

    Thanks, it all comes down to time and money now. With all the varied forms of tasks I do I have been known to redirect funds for tools almost constantly which makes it harder to make the big...
