    Ross, I gather you don't like the side panels! Why? I have seen no issues, and Iike that they are light and easy to lift, unlike the covers on my Monarch lathe...

    Looks perfect for an rpc. I bought a similar motor locally, 15HP but not Reliance, and built an RPC for the new garage. It works great, the 10HP hard starting compressor starts great now.

    No, Don has it right. There is no need for a triple pin spanner. Sight glass bezels are easy to break loose either by tilting a punch or by tapping sideways with a punch. Its only worked for me...

    Ron, maybe you should contact Monarch and ask about it. The only VSR I know about used a small pot, the same as the speed control knob for forward. I am assuming that your machine is a MG not a...

    Also, don't overlook a larger Monarch. I don't have the space, but if I did, my second lathe would be a model 62 with the short bed. They often sell for about the same price as a 10ee.

    Yeah, that happens. Post on this forum and it will be seen by lots of people.

    However, I agree 100% with your advice. that is the same model 4 jaw chuck I have and use. I have a Buck 6" 4-jaw...

    The other thing you need to do is watch the file size. On a Mac, the Preview aplication lets you "export" an image, and the dialog box lets you select the image quality. It has a slider. I always...

    MG round dials with flat belts aren't that common, so I wouldn't go searching for posts on the topic. Here is what I did when I needed a new belt: measured the old one. Went down to the locally...

    You might get more response if you included more information. Flat belt or V-belt? Idler pulley on left or right?

    This has also been covered quite well in older posts. Take a look at some of...

    OK, refilling the reservoir did it. It was about ½ liter down. Strange that the horizontal spindle eject was still working; do they have separate sensors for oil level? I still have to bleed it,...

    The switch on the operator's console appears to be working: when set for horizontal, the hydraulic pump works and it ejects the tool in the horizontal spindle. Also the vertical spindle rotates...

    There is no leak in any of the visible hoses or fittings, but I think there is air in the line. I disconnected the fitting and there is no fluid in evidence. How to bleed it and where is the...
  15. Hydraulic tool ejection not working on FP2NC

    This morning when I turned on the machine, FP2NC with D2, the hydraulic tool ejection is not working for the vertical spindle. It is working fine on horizontal, but when vertical is tried, no sound...

    The engagement by the knob circled in red is not simple. Often the knob will rotate to a point and stop, but not be fully engaged. Continue to try and rotate the knob with your left hand and...

    Jojo, where are you located? What is the thread feed? I am looking for a top slide with rear dovetail.

    OK, thanks Mud and the others who made suggestions. I will give the Stellram a try. Maybe its time to invest in some new tooling and get rid of the old face mills.

    When using a face mill on a...

    I was using mode 7, so the feed dial was in play. It was set to 80 and I varied the % dial between 20 and 80 (or more if the cut was light). So in mode 7, feed is in mm/min? RPM was 200. The face...

    The cut I was making was an iron casting with 2” webs. 3” face mill with 3 cutters. .050” cut and a feed of around 20-40. Not sure what the feed units are, the Deckel manuals aren’t clear whether or...
  21. Gear noise from interrupted cuts on FP2NC

    I sometimes get a lot of noise from the vertical head or the gear train when I am using a face mill with a small number of teeth (3) and the cut is interrupted. It sounds like gear slap to me, and I...

    Its still a good buy at $1000, just as a parts machine. i.e. the steady rest is worth $300, the collet closer and nose piece $300, face plate $100. I couldn't tell if it has a taper attachment, if...

    I haven't tried 3150 in horizontal. I need to cut a circular t-slot (making a base for a Hilma vise), so I will be using horizontal for that and I will let you know. I don't think this machine has...
