    Ross those products sound worth a try at first, a new bronze gear sounds like a possible future project. You say shaped or hobbed, but to me it looks like a regular spur gear, shouldn't it be doable...

    I finally got the new shims last night, I did not expect it to take this long from Germany, nearly 3 weeks... Today I have adjusted the gears in both directions and currently got a pretty darn nice...

    I am not sure this applies to your shop, but I found that I used the space quite effectively by putting the deckel in the center of the floor, and I put the lathe behind it.

    Like this, the...

    I noticed something in the ebay ad. The long reach head has a front and rear clamp. On my machine there is only a clamp at the rear of the long reach head. I wonder if it's lost, or if there was a...

    Yes that is the long reach head. The regular vertical head is visibly shorter and has a little humpback shape to its top, this one is long and straight.

    I am not sure now, but if it's got movement, then I don't think lapping and removing more material will help. Since material cannot be added, I think a replacement bronze sleeve is required.

    The info about the kim wipes was solid, I need to buy those.

    Well even if the width remains the same the longer nut still has more surface area, so it'd be an improvement nonetheless. Just not as great of one.

    At least now I know what minimum size requirement I should have for a rotary table purchase.

    In this thread you can see how others have enlarged the t-slots and made new nuts:

    Long-reach FP2 head (from circa 1964)

    Unfortunately those procedures all used vertical spindles, but I would...

    Do you have any pictures of your covers? I thought about that but instead I put up a plastic drape across the room to keep the woodworking dust contained. Still interested to see how others deal with...

    I'm a bit paranoid about wood dust and metalworking machines myself, I understand wood dust can wear down slide way sufaces too and is hard to control since it is easily air borne. Though I read that...

    I have only a small shop for myself, but I keep it heated with a couple of oil filled electric heaters. 10 C is plenty fine for the machines and me, once April or May rolls around I can usually turn...

    Yes I've run it with the spindle out and it makes the exact same noise, so the spindle can be ruled out.

    The photo is taken from the bottom of the vertical head casting, so it's gear A using the labels before that has the arrows on it. BTW the grease gives a good print here, indicating to me as well it...

    There is very little play for me when I try that so I don't think that is the issue.

    I removed the spindle and I video'd the inside to get a visual on how the gears mesh.

    This is with 0.8mm of shims, you can see that it's got quite a lot of backlash.

    Here is 1.8mm, I...

    I have only been altering bevel gear B as you name it. As it came when I bought it the bevel gear had 1 mm of shims behind it.

    I removed the shims completely and it made no difference to the...

    An interesting idea, it has always felt super tight however. I went out at once and tried it but no change.

    I've tested today using no shims, .4mm .5mm .7mm and 1.2mm (1mm was the original). Yet to try the .9 and .2 combo but I don't think it will make any difference, none of these made any change to the...

    I only have the felt ring on the vertical spindle.



    The thrust bearing is there but it's not shown in the picture. I remember it got left inside when I removed the parts. I got it out...

    In this case the sound is quite identical regardless how I turn it, doesn't matter if I use the inching wheel at the back either. The sound is reduced by a lot when I disengage the drive train using...

    I believe I got that sorted, the bottom bearing was a very tight fit into the housing and I swapped the top one around and went with the one that was more difficult to fit into the housing. I had...

    I have that one too and it's also a leaker... Which is why I now have a one shot lube pump. Not yet installed but soon.

    It's a cheap chinese model so I wasn't going to use it as is. I've had it...
