    Hi Ross,

    thanks for the elaboration, points taken.

    (Now that you mentioned it, I would have assumed this tool was like a dial bore gauge, and now I realized that I am not sure how those work...

    Hi to all,

    TTS shank is 3/4" IIRC and can, indeed, make your life a bit easier for smaller tools.

    But a MT4 ER collet chuck will help for real work, as Ross suggested, as will direct MT4...

    It seems like a B16 taper (matches the MT2 angle). Check here and you'll, most probably, find your taper: Drill Chucks

    Wondering what those links led to Bruce, can't open them either.... I'll try from home as well.

    (if it's only the bearing support at the end of the overarm, then yes, he'll need it!)

    Hi to all,

    unless I am mistaken, Deckel never provided any overarms for the FP3, it was that vertical head that doubled as such. (not that an FP2 overarm wouldn't fit though).

    So, if you have...

    Hi there,

    check your manual where it describes the gauge block method for accurate axes movement. There is that holder for a dial indicator and then the movable base and gauge blocks.

    Hey Bruce,

    I think you might reconsider when you get a bigger lathe... Can't beat finish on pre-hard if you have the horsepower to cut it.

    We have a lot B* tapered chucks as well Ross, at least in Europe. B12-B16 most commonly.

    I am sure Dennis won't have the machine binding at the end of it's travels. So, it should be light enough in the most-used part of the travel where there'll be some wear.

    Hey Dennis,

    I don't think wear on the ways can increase drag to dangerous (for the nut) levels (actually, a worn machine is 'lighter' on the handwheels).

    Your X leadscrew has a slot, check it...

    Hey Bruce,
    Yes, the head that slides back is, indeed, a nice feature, but not critical.
    Yeap, FP3 has 300 mm Y travel plus 200 mm in the 'long reach' feature.



    Thanks Peter for confirming...

    FP2/FP3 differences

    Hi guys,

    not that I have the budget or a candidate for a direct upgrade from my FP2, but I certainly consider (or dream of) an FP3. (I have a 500mm twin dial FP2)

    I like it for the extra Y...
