    After looking at your photos I just thought you might be point loading the corners when profiling.

    To those who have broken these before, do the way these grips brake look like the way yours...

    Possibly too much torque on them when profiling the parts? Too bad the Talon grips don't come in different widths for different parts. Or locate the Talon grips centered between the parts so they...

    I am talking with the national Kitamura headquarters but I have to get quotes and buy from my area rep. When my way lube pump died last December the quoted price through my rep was pretty close to...

    I run a full synthetic with virtually no rust issues, only some staining between the vise and table after several months. I have no special grounding or anything else to avoid rust. Coolant is at...

    I think Amazon belongs in there.

    Funny time. I got the quote back on the parts I need from Kitamura. The biggest laugh is nearly $2k for the two drawbar springs, thankfully I don't have to get them, but the grippers and some spindle...

    Start searching! Hennig rebuilt both Y-axis covers before I bought my machine so I could get new wipers from them. Both of my X-axis way covers are original and although the wipers are still there...

    I think this is what you want. From how I read it, not official, it looks like you are well within tolerance. Keep in mind the manufacturers have set the tolerance so it is VERY loose.

    I would be scared a bronze muffler would restrict the air exhaust causing some backpressure. I will do something just not sure what yet. The airflow stops 4 minutes after the spindle but still, I...

    There is a company that makes a pneumatic attachment to drive the vise screw that looks pretty good. Easy to convert from manual to auto in seconds. Sorry but I don't know the company or which...

    Wow, that's a lot for 50 amps. Thanks for checking the play in your spindle. I am thinking I will be getting a new drawbar and spindle coupling, but will wait to hear what Setco says.

    What does your indicator swept over the table surface tell you? Of course this is only after you know your mill is level and true. How long since you checked the level and that the Z-axis is...

    Depends on the stones used. With good diamond stones the harder the steel the easier it is to get a keen edge.

    At least that is the simplest cover on the machine.

    $5500-$6000 to replace the bearings. A couple hundred more to dust off the taper. Removal and installation are on you. Removal is fairly easy,...

    Take a close look at the rear Y axis cover, that is the one I would think is in the worst condition because of how many small segments make it up. Which X axis cover?

    Take good care of that...

    I am not sure about the light but I "think" it is always on. As for the conveyor that is what your 3-month warranty is for.

    Photo 5, second row up from the bottom on the left. You have 5 contactors in a row, press the reset buttons on them while the power is off and see what that does.

    There are 2 more to the right of...

    This is what they look like in my machine, on the lower left-hand side of the cabinet. They are marked MS05 through MS13. When I reset one of mine I can barely tell, the feeling and sound are very...

    Funny how this stuff happens on a Friday night. The only thought I have is to look for a tripped relay. Perhaps the conveyer pulled too many amps.

    Ferrel house cats are only good for birds and bunnies, both of which I like. No bad juju in shooting ferrel house cats. Coyotes are great for squirrels and cats, but I have a neighbor that knows...

    Where I relocate to the squirrel population is several times larger than anywhere else so I am confident they aren't all getting killed. Trapping the scouts does make a significant reduction in how...

    The Squirrelinator. is the best trap I have used so far, been doing this for about 20 years now. Our mini subdivision is called Grey Digger Heights, for the type of squirrel we have. I relocate...

    Nevermind, I forgot you have a Fanuc control. Anyway, that sounds like great news! Let us know what you think of it after using it for a while. Keep your tool and holder projections as short as...
