    If you're willing to spend some time searching on eBay and eBay Germany (eBay.de) you can score some nice Heidenhain DRO components for cheap. One example, I outfitted my lathe with dro and scales...

    I'd be checking for a short in the stylus end as well as checking the power supply output on the main board. Any recent event (drop, coolant ingress etc?)?
  4. Hermle 851 UWF Spindle Bearing Replacment

    Hi all,
    The last few days my Hermle spindle is getting a bit warmer than I'm used to down near the taper. After getting a drawing back from Hermle, I believe the lower taper bearing may have some...

  8. Hermle 851 UWF Spindle Getting Warmer Than Usual

    Hi all,

    Thanks pb1, this is exactly what I'm being told by numerous shops. Looks like we will have to make a change to the machining process to accommodate these steps if black ano is what is needed in the...

    Thanks Scott. We are looking into paint options at the moment. Any recommendations? Currently looking at powder coat but would prefer a possible thinner coating.

    Thanks Milland. I'm sure there is a great process out there, just can't get any suppliers around me to want to commit to any of them. When the parts are more than 50% masking they have an issue. ...

    Thanks Dan. Yea, alodyne/chromate finish is what I'm after for all the internal surfaces and mounting locations and may be what I have to do across the whole box. Client was hoping for a black...

    I've been happy with my Makergear M2 (might be slightly higher than $1500). I've never had an issue going on 4 years. I don't print all the time but when I do, it works well.
