    I think if you make a nice fixture like Bruce's, you might be able to fit it on the 200 mm rotab.

    Dennis I think just deburred it manually, didn't do anything to widen the T-slot and fit larger...

    My head would like some work in the T slot department as well, some day.

    I only have the 380 mm Deckel rotab and I am not too keen on mounting it on an angle plate I admit, I don't even have one...

    And the best part is that there seem to be many things to discover when it reaches you. Happy days...

    Right, this would be really handy. Plus some blocks to raise your parts.




    Yes, indeed, I remember that one time he actually went to the lathe :):):)

    Hi there Jacques,

    I always enjoy this guy's videos, he's a HBM fanatic, refuses to even go to the lathe :)

    However, I think that 90% of the setup time is edited out... makes it seem much easier...

    I don't really do any general woodworking in the shop, and when I do machines are covered.

    In the really rare occasions that I actually machine wood, I use temporary covering means to protect the...

    I've lately decided that my machines, provided that I don't do anything stupid and that I keep them clean and lubricated, are really unlikely to wear on my hands, at least not in a noticeable to me...

    Well, excuse my messy workshop, it's better now but still far from tidy.

    I am no Ross, but I use the horizontal on the FP2 all the time. Actually, the fabulous long reach head has allowed me to...

    Thrust bearing orientation is not to be neglected. One race is a tight fit to the housing and the other to the shaft. So, make sure the installation is such that what needs to be moved can be moved...

    Hey Dennis,

    not sure I understood your question correctly because I would have thought you knew: these machines run with right-hand tools, that is clock-wise from the tool's point of view.

    I saw pictures like that as well. How do you lubricate your bronze bushing then?

    Hey there Bruce,

    I think this image here makes much more sense regarding guiding the oil to the top of the quill so that it can reach the bronze bushing:

    sorry for the off topic, but isn't this table a bit strange for the FP1? Could be the angle of the picture

    Hey there,

    if I remember correctly, the oilers in the front are for the gears and the quill. I think that bronze bushings are lubricated through the spindle tail drive slot! If you put oil there...

    Hi to all,

    I've made a couple of similar bars, much smaller though.

    I have turned a couple of washers for such application in the past using hard(ish) spring steel leaf. Trepanned them on the lathe. If you are careful with deburring it can be done relatively easily.
