    Dan, you're welcome. This might also be useful, it's the VRZ401 manual and the MT (Metro gauge) manual.

    One of the nice things about Heidenhain is that they have all the stone-age documentation...

    Hi Dave,

    I'm glad to help. I've gotten so much useful support from this forum that it's nice to give something back.



    I was wondering about the same thing. Perhaps when I have my own plate...

    Your read-out uses 11 microamp (11uA) scales with 9-pin connectors. Those are NOT TTL signals.

    A common model of probe that produces 11uA signals which you can find on Ebay is the MT series. For...

    I think the pressure matters, not the size. A jet of hydraulic fluid at a few hundred bar that hits your skin or your eye will do lasting damage.

    What's the operating pressure for the...

    Yes, IF they can spec the right hose and the crimp ferrules. But in that case it's not 'unobtainium'.

    My local place won't crimp on "foreign" fittings. They say that their hydraulic crimping...

    I think I've done better than that -- I edited my post to include a top and bottom photo of a raising plate intended to mount on a 14mm table, taken from one of Franz Singer's Ebay adverts.

    I've also had good experiences taking damaged hoses to a local hydraulics shop. Replacing hoses is one of the most common things they do. All they need to know is operating pressure of the system...

    It would be a big improvement if I could shave off enough to matter (say 50kg, to drop the weight from 190 to 140kg). But I'm worried that the castings would warp. So I'm not convinced that this is...

    Hi Dave,



    Here are the dimensions, I started a new thread so this would be easier to find in the future:

  10. Deckel Zwischenplatte / Riser Plate 2719 for 6017 Rundtisch / Rotary Table

    I'm starting a new thread about the Deckel 2719 000200 and 2719 000300 riser plates. These are intended to lift the model 6017 rotary table off the mounting surface so that the controls don't...

    Back to the Hermle type 14.2 table...

    I talked to Franz Singer about it today. Conclusion was that since I am operating the machine at most a couple of hundred hours a year, the extra mass is not...

    Hi Dave,



    Sure. It may take me a couple of days before I can get into the shop to do this. Meanwhile here is an excerpt from a February 1986 catalog with part numbers. The dimensions of the...

    Hi Ross,



    I thought that I did it right. My "mass distribution" (horizontal table, 2 x vises, 3 x lapping plates, raising plate, train track) has its center of gravity (COG) in about the same...

    Since the coolant system is missing, there is only a single 3-phase motor in the system. If it were me, I would just purchase a VFD sized for that motor, with a single-phase input and 3-phase...

    Hi Tien,



    Fair enough, I re-worded what I wrote above.



    And I am convinced of that, also.

    I am trying to decide whether or not to purchase a Hermle Type 14.2 universal toolmakers table, after TNB brought it to my attention, and I was offered one at a reasonable price. Positive aspects:

    OK, going back to the topic of this thread, I bought a used Deckel "raising table" (Zwischenplatte). Here's the weird thing: the 12mm T-nut slots are at 45mm spacing as they should be, and all the...

    I suggest that you contact Thomas Henning directly <[email protected]> rather than purchasing over Ebay. You will probably get a better price and more easily sort out shipping to Australia.

    Way oil flow adjustment: there is a slotted screw under the speed control lever.

    From Section 2.2.1.6 of the manual:

    To adjust the flow of oil to the slideways proceed as follows:

    I am sure Franz Singer will have one, but it might be pricey:

    Welcome to the group!

    I'm not certain, but I think your lathe might be very similar to (or identical to) a Colchester Triumph 2000 lathe. In that case, you might find it useful to join this...

    Probably a Mikrokator. These have a really cool zero-backlash design and are incredibly reliable/resistant. I bet it's still working.

    The problem is that there is very little trans-atlantic air traffic these days. Normally packages get a cheap ride to fill up excess capacity in the cargo hold. But now packages are going by boat,...

    I love machining cast iron, but I hate the mess and clean-up afterwards.
