    Think Michael Deckel was a relative (son, grandson?) of Friedrich. At some point around the 1950s or 1960s the company was split up, the milling machines stayed at "DECKEL". Michael Deckel started...

    There is a dog point set screw that enters from the front, directly on centerline. Possibly covered with paint.

    If you have a set up that is close to, or at the limits of the machine travels, using the handwheels sometimes lets you sneak a little extra travel from the machine that is not available when using...

    DIsclaimer- not a purist when it comes to keeping the 10EE running.
    There are a couple versions of warmup timers depending on vintage of the control.
    After about mid 1960s vintage, the design was...

    Best I can tell there are 3.5 software versions of Dialog4- 2.19, 2.33 and 3.07.
    2.19 was the basic kit, included most of the canned cycles
    2.33 added parameters, possibly faster rapids,...

    Don't have anything bad to say about Holbrook, but pretty sure a C13 doesn't have 100-1 stepless variable speed control, won't run at 4000rpm, nor does it have the braking of a 10EE.

    For certain,...

    Looks terrific, I have 2 FP4NCs and a 10EE for you to work your magic on during your next trip to Utah.

    The Dialog control has many of the features of more modern Fanuc based controls, but the G-codes are often different.
    G54 lets you set a new co-ordinate for any axis written in the same block.

    Probably not in backwards but pretty sure there is a DIP switch on the axis board to set the scale direction.

    Possibly the Axis movement pushbutton switch on the main operator console is stuck or gone bad, maybe shorted, or you have a bad relay (faulted in the closed position) controlling the servo motor. ...

    This is generally true, except when it's not.
    One notable exception is the convention for Deckel style milling machines- Z is always the table moving up/down. When the vertical spindle is used the...

    Sounds like your machine is in much better condition than most.
    Not sure what you are designating X and Z, but the fine adjusters on either axis have lots of backlash inherent in their design.

    Pretty sure that style edgefinder is designed to jump when you touch the edge-using a magnifier to line up the edges defeats the design of the tool. My experience is that generally this style...

    There is usually 5 degrees relief on the side and 5 on the front but it depends on the holder. Some holders have no relief on the side and 10 on the front, there may be other variations as well.

    44907-351.12 on both FP4NCs here, the flip head machine shifts a little better than the 3150 though neither is 100% and sometimes have to coax it with a dowel.

    Hey Donie
    Perhaps I missed it, but what made you decide on an Axelson instead of getting a Monarch 612, 60/61, Series 70 or similar to match your 10EEs?
