    Hi,

    Note: the pictures look like a VN22, not a VN22L. So the older generation with the feed motor

    complex scraping alignment approach

    Hi,

    I'm continuing work on my Van Norman 22LU machine.

    So far, the column is scraped, the knee back is scraped, and the knee flat way
    is scraped.

    The top of the column (bearing surface...

    Done with scraping on the knee for alignment and reasonably good bearing. I had estimated
    I was taking off about .008" from the underside of the saddle and somewhere around .025" to get below most...

    It seems like the gib is pulled down (and thus sideways via the angle) only at the gib clamp locations.

    Since the recommended hoisting method of the machine is partly by the ram and partly the...

    I was concerned the scores (running front to back) would prevent even oil distribution.

    Thanks. I tried the angle grinder and a brief touch resulted in ~.001" divots, but not

  9. high material removal scraping technique?

    Hi,
    I'm scraping in my VN22L mill. So far, I've scraped in the column face, and
    the ram's flat ways (top of the column) to perpendicular to the column face.

    I've scraped the back of the knee to...

    adjusting Van Norman 22L ram gib?

    Hi,

    I'm scraping in a VN22LU, and have scraped the top of the column (bearing surface
    for the ram).

    Has anyone adjusted the ram gib on these machines?

    Mine looks mostly like this in the...

    In the picture above the top is the gibbed side,
    The guiding side is bottom.

    I guess i might try this only on places where chips won’t get to,
    Ie the underside of the knee / saddle dovetail.

    Or maybe the ram dovetail.

    Thanks, I am probably committed to scraping the top of the knee, however there are some more

    Got some Victor 60346 seals from ebay, unfortunately the rubber is very stiff so maybe not
    usable. However, easy to measure without removing the original:
