    Hi Rich,

    I think you got a great deal, if the spindle is OK. You'll need to adjust the bearings and check that they turn smoothly. But provided they do, that's a nice lathe to make parts and...

    Here's one on German Ebay for 30 Euros:

    Deckel FP 2 Abdeckung | eBay

    I think the weight is under 2kg so DHL shipping to the USA adds another 20 Euros.

    Ross,

    this is off topic, but it makes me queasy looking at a few hundred pounds of irreplaceable engine cantilevered over the end of your FP4NC table with no safety line to above.

    new leather strip for a Biax BL40

    I've finally found a Biax BL40 for a reasonable price and bought it. But it turns out that the leather strap is torn and close to falling off. Has anyone got a spare one for sale? I'm afraid to...

    It's a good idea to replace these wipers, even though they are pricey. Maybe someone here has a spare set they can sell you for less.

    In addition to these wipers, and the Z bellows, to protect...

    I would rather use hardwood shims, oak or beech. These will crush slightly under pressure, deforming a bit to conform to imperfections and support the surface better.

    That's right. If I understand correctly, you have a 2202 machine, which has the motor hanging out the back (rather than hidden in the base) and 400mm X travel rather than 500. Also a built-in...

    Hi Siggi,

    You probably pulled out an adaptor for 355E collets.

    For SK40 heads, there are three forms of this adaptor. One has a tapered nose with two flats. One has a turned-down nose with no...
