    The style of brayer is a personal preference, just like what you use for spotting ink. What works for me doesn't work for others, obviously by the posts above. Brayers aren't that expensive so buy...

    I'll attach a couple of photos of ones like this that I have seen lately. The one I had was in the original steel box and had Borel & Dunner on the box. I heard somewhere that an employee at Borel &...

    Too much grease will cause excessive heat build up, so you have to keep an eye on the bearing temps when you run it in. As far as 30 percent, I don't even go by percentages any more but I have...

    I injured my hand, hard to type. But if you turned off the scale and now the alarm is present immediately I would say bad encoder. Swap encoders with x-axis if they are the same, if it follows the...

    You must have a passion to do this kind of work, and I admire that. It is like a piece of cast iron that I spend 100 hours scraping on and then sell it for $100 because that is what it is worth....

    Check your parameters in 1815 and see if it uses bit four(APZ) and five(APC) for absolute encoder on y axis. You can also see if bit one(OPT) is on for separate feedback(Scale), one = uses scale. I...

    No, but thanks for the tip Charles. I didn't even think about MSC.

    You can add one to my order making it three total. I will even buy more to make the 25 if needed. That is a good deal and I am always repairing levels with broken vials. I have some levels tucked...

    Where did you order them from? I would really like to know because all I needed were screws too. I had the Starrett part numbers and the distributor wouldn't order them. It's been a while but I...

    I tried to buy some parts for a 199 level from a Starrett distributor and they told me that Starrett has a minimum of $500 per order. Needless to say they were not able to order the parts for me so I...

    The coolest place I have had the privilege of riding was the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island. I was there on a service call back in the 90s that lasted for 6 months, January thru June. I ended up...

    That limit switch was not the cause of the soft over-travel alarm. That alarm was because the z-axis "Machine" position reached the limit in parameter 1321. The motor was turning but the slide didn't...

    It sounds like a mechanical issue with the coupling between the motor and ballscrew. Does this machine have a torque limit between the shaft on the motor and the ball screw?

    Thanks Rich, but I have no desire to lift, much less scrape something that needs a 72 inch camelback. I scraped the one I had and that was some awful hard work. I sold it along with a 50 inch...

    On most Okuma machines there is a switch in the electrical enclosure that you flip, labeled OT Release. On some it is a push button so it is a two person job.

    For future reference, he had to hold the "Ready" button and the "Emerg Bypass" then move off of the OT switch. Hardinge mills you hold the "EM' button and "Machine ready" buttons.
