    I'm surprised at painting No2. " Never Stand Under A Suspended Load " was the rule in my working life. Especially one rigged like that. Also what were three guys doing under it ?

    CNC lathes have ball screws. Being backlash free is big plus when you're parting off.

    Yes you're right. The coolant will get in along the keyway in the feed shaft that runs through the apron. Even with a specially shaped seal like " Herbert's " provided it'll get in eventually....

    Yes definitely. You've jogged my memory again Sami, some of the jobs I did on the " Herbert's " were to repair damage caused by coolant ingress into the aprons , mainly the apron on the turning...

    It comes back to me now. I had to repair a 9C-30 once were I needed to remove the saddle. There was a keeper strip at the front behind the apron holding the saddle in place. I could get at the bolts...

    I think that's the story Sami. I've repaired a few over the years, mainly on the 9C-30's, and I seem to recall that removing the apron wasn't as straight forward as on a centre lathe.

    I'd follow Sami's advice regarding turning the chuck over by hand to see if the stop mechanism works. Having said that in my experience if the feed lever trips out easily by hand it'll work with the...

    I've worked on both styles of " Herbert " No 4 machines in the past from a maintenance and repair point of view. The " Pre-ops " were a fantastic lathe. Anything " Herberts " built was made to last a...

    If it's the same style as the ones I worked on you move the turret saddle by releasing two bolts, one at the front of the saddle and one at the back. They are low down on the saddle. You can then...

    As you can probably see he wasn't the sharpest knife in the box. He was big and daft, the spitting image of " Bluto " in the old " Popeye cartoons. The rash was really bad, sort of minor burns.
