    I have the electrical cabinet wired to the point where I can run the mill.
    What a joy this mill is to use, I'm so glad I missed out on that Bridgeport back when :D. I can now turn stock into scrap...

    Did you guys figure out what’s going on with this?

    I ran my FP2 in reverse like an idiot the first time I hooked it up. I ran the Y-axis (ram) into the physical end stop, as of course when you run in reverse the feed doesn't kick out. The feed...

    [/QUOTE]

    Hold on - PG-29 is the thread I need. It's a 37mm OD, 16TPI, 80 degree thread angle. The other end is PG-42, 54mm, 16TPI.
    OMG, what an abomination, metric ID with TPI threads! While I'll...

    I found a local electrical supplier that's the bees knees just 15 minutes up the road. Ended up with 1 1/4 armoured conduit and fittings. As I'm replacing the electrical box, I'm just terminating...

    Congrats - it looks beautiful! What serial/year is it?
    Looks like the electrical cabinet is a retrofit, is that your doing or did it come that way?

    I wish mine hadn't been abused with an ugly...

    Yups that was the one - thanks! I wouldn't be surprised if the felt in there dated back to the sixties - it looked pretty limp. By comparison I had a hard time packing the new piece into place.

    Ah, cool, I suspected as much, but I couldn't find any diagram showing this.


    Yeah I need to get that plate off. It's been "hooked" on something, so is bowed out (forwards) and the screws are...

    I got'er running with a temporary gitup, everything just mounted on the panel out of the box. I think I'd like to use the mill to drill and bore the holes in the box for the various orifices and...

    I can't get any highfalutin' 3 phase 'lectric to my humble abode for inside a large king's random. So, I can either change the motor for a single-phase abomination, or else install a VFD. A VFD is...

    I got my stuff from Franz Singer. The way wipers include the elaborate Z-axis wiper, the Y-axis blocks and a felt piece. Where does the felt piece go?

    I ordered new way wipers and some spindle grease from Franz Singer.
    Regarding the grease they tell me “Don't worry, the spindle bearing grease NBU15 is only the successor of the ISOFLEX SUPER TEL...

    This nagged at me a bit, but I don't think it's a problem. The nameplate on the motor tags it as 220/380, so I'm pretty sure they just ran it a little lean. I don't think it'll harm a 3 phase motor...

    For giggles I put an indicator on the horizontal spindle taper this morning. It's only a half-thousand test indicator, but I see no needle movement whatsoever. By comparison my Chinesium lathe...

    I figure this is why the horizontal quill froze, it's the "stickifier" in the way oil getting sticky.

    Thanks - I also found this reconstructed picture instruction manual. When (if) I attempt re-greasing my spindle, that'll be my guide.

    PS: Did I mention how awesome this forum is for a...
  17. Thanks - I'm seeing a couple of posts...

    Thanks - I'm seeing a couple of posts where the vertical spindles are re-greased with NBU-15, and if it's good enough for them... Will inquire @Franz Singer also.

    On my 1966/7 FP2, you pull out the knobs to change settings. Both of them are H/L/N on mine.

    I'm about to make an order for new way wipers from Franz Singer, and I noticed that they offer some grease in reasonable sized packaging. I figured if it's suitable, I might as well buy some to use...

    For anyone doing this reassembly, note that the locking rod has to go in before the endcap goes on the table (ask me how I know). Also make sure the rod is timed the right way before the endcap goes...

    Nevermind - I took a look at this and couldn't find any way the locking pin would slip into place from the inside. So, I slid the table half-way off again, got the pin and locking sleeve into place,...

    Hey Bruce,

    I'm just re-installing the table on my FP2, and I'm puzzled at this point. Does the clamping pin need to slip into place as the table is sliding on, or is it possible to insert it...

    Ok, finally got the mill moved out of the garage into the workshop. Had to get it over a 4" threshold and down a hallway, hence the table needed to come off and all of that. Using a pallet truck, a...

    Ah, thanks, I found the drawing but it's pretty low on detail :).



    I found this thread which has a picture of the cross-hole that feeds down to the lower part of the slideways - though it...

    I’ve been trying to figure this out from pics on the threads here, but how is the oil supposed to get to the X slideways? Obviously this was working on my mill, as everything was slick on...
