    Certainly they aren't pristine, but there's no real discernable wear... The unworn areas that are original ground finish as far as I can tell are no different in height from the areas that "look" a...

    Well, pulled every lube line today. Pretty much every single metering valve was clogged with nasty funky junk. Looked like miniature sump livers from a coolant tank that hasn't been cleaned in too...

    It's been some time since I read Machine Tool Reconditioning but I remember there being something in there about the hydraulic grinders that use the same system for hydraulics and lubricating oil -...

    Speaking of the Gorillas... Bought the F150 mentioned earlier secondhand. First time I went to remove a wheel, the locking lugs were so damn tight the key broke. Had to use one of those special...

    I've owned probably 30+ cars and trucks. I've used anti-seize compound on the lug studs of EVERY SINGLE ONE and wonder of wonders, never had a wheel fall off. Use your brains fellas! Recommended lug...

    No they are not, but I'm not sure they should be with continuous pressure lubrication. I think they just kind of float on the oil. I can't even feel an inkling of wear between where the surface of...

    Yes I sure do have multiple manuals. The only problem is that this Dial-a-Size option seems to have been somewhat of a rare bird on this size machine. So the parts manuals aren't exactly always...

    It sure would be easier to have a constructive dialog/debate if people could stop making inflammatory and derisive comments. If you make the opposing side feel like you just don't give a flying duck...

    I have a few slightly older sets of these that came brand new from MSC and none have the smaller last digit. The last digit also does not disappear when the size falls on a whole thousandth - it's...

    So got into the cross feed cylinder today. Found that it doesn't contain any piston seal at all. It's a metal on metal fit from the piston to the bore. There's a seal on the rod, but not on the...

    So I just managed to find a little more in-depth owner's/operator's manual for the Advance cross-slide tables... I got a guy to scan it for me. It's 30ish pages. If you guys would like a copy let me...

    Haha... No. My spindle has a few tenths clearance to the housing and it slides freely. That sucker is heavy... Definitely needs a spring. I think maybe the dried up nasty brown grease in my machine's...

    Then yes it sure does Greg... Without the spring the quill would fall right out the bottom unless you held it with the handle. Ideally, the spring should do just as you describe. After repeated...

    Mine is in pretty good shape still, the former owners must not have used the power feed much. It still has a nice snap when engaging and disengaging.

    I think the table dogs can do that in manual mode... Not positive though, I have only ground the chuck and one part so far. Will check when it's back together. Anyone else have a Series II or used...
