    If you pull out the lower gib, the locking pin will drop. I don't imagine you can re-fit it without taking the table off - at least I couldn't figure out any way to do so when I had the table off my...

    Yeah, my little Taig CNC mill uses ER16 collets, and I've had a 3/8" endmill pull out gradually during aggressive milling. Thankfully I copped on before it pulled all the way out and made a HSS...

    Deckel FP2 n00b questions

    Hey y'all,

    as a first milling project, I'm making some T-slot nuts for my 1967 Deckel FP2. I'm making these from 4140HT, which is probably a sub-optimal choice for a starter project, but I'm using...

    I'm starting to ponder a spindle cleaning and "repacking". I remembered seeing a good thread detailing how this is done, with lots of pictures. Of course when I went back to look for it I couldn't...

    Deckel FP2 how to free frozen horizontal quill?

    While Franz Singer doesn’t list the part on their site or on eBay, they responded to my query with an offer to sell me the two wipers. These are two identical wipers, presumably symmetrical in...

    I did a bit of milling this afternoon to make some T-nuts for my Chinesium vise. This is how Jersey John broke his end cap casting, so I was a little apprehensive :D.
    The mill came with a ~1 3/4"...

    Acceptable vertical spindle play?

    Hey y'all,

    for giggles I put my half-thou dial indicator on the spindle nose to test for play. My magnetic base was attached to the Y-ram, so some of the play comes from flexion of the head, and I...

    I just wanted to say thanks for that nugget of knowledge. I was all geared up to cut 1.5mm conventional metric thread on the mill end, but armed with this little nugget of information I was able to...

    Yups, that's where it's at - thanks.

    Did you figure out what caused the stress on the endcap casting yet?

    Well then, so much for my theory. Guess the slide ways bound up somehow.

    Sorry about the thread necro here, but I've been looking for photos of where a one-shot oiler fits and you linked this one into my FP2 thread.

    I recently took the table off my FP2, and I had hands on this during de- and reassembly. You can pull the hex locking bar right out without trouble.

    Here is the parts drawing of the operator's side endcap:

    The plastic piece would be part 2001-162 in that drawing. The way it's drawn, however, I'd expect it to be a metal spacer sized...

    Ouch, I have nothing to contribute but condolences. I hope you get to the bottom of what happened and get the mill going again.

    I just tightened up the X-gibs, drove them in as far as I dared at one end of travel where it's tightest, then backed off a half turn. Didn't overlook or forget the locking screws this time.

    Right - that's what I figured.
    I didn't quite man up for the X-gibs today, but I did measure the X/Y deflection, and I did adjust the Y-gib. Before adjustment, I managed nearly 10 thou deflection of...

    Thanks, this sounds nice and simple, I'll try see where I get with those instructions. I'm guessing the Y-gib would be adjusted the same way?

    How to adjust X-gibs?

    Hey y'all,

    When I put the table back on my FP2, I adjusted the gibs pretty much higgledy-piggledy by feel. I went for where I can feel it noticeably tighten towards each end of travel. I did, at...

    Value of spindle braking?

    I just got the braking resistor and I wasted no time in hooking it up and testing it. I think I might be coming to a realization that it's perhaps not worth much to brake a mill with a VFD.
    Now, the...
