    Sorry to hear that the drill bit broke off.

    In your shoes I would also try to make a press. How thick could you make the fingers behind gear 3? If these are too thin, could you push gear 3...

    Could you post a few close-ups? If you get the light hitting it at the right angle we can better see what was done.

    Thanks for the photos. I guess that the one-shot oilers were added later.

    Your machine is outfitted with the standard vertical head. Most of these machines were delivered with the "long-reach"...

    That's right. If I understand correctly, you have a 2202 machine, which has the motor hanging out the back (rather than hidden in the base) and 400mm X travel rather than 500. Also a built-in...

    If you have 355E collets (also known as U2 collets) then I would not use that adaptor. You can get one of the threaded kind with an extraction nut for about 40 Euros new from RC-Machines:

    Hi Siggi,

    You probably pulled out an adaptor for 355E collets.

    For SK40 heads, there are three forms of this adaptor. One has a tapered nose with two flats. One has a turned-down nose with no...

    Nice project - that will be a beautiful machine once you get it working and repainted.

    Evaporust works really well for this sort of thing, if you can afford a couple of 5 gallon pails of it. It's...

    ET, this thread is almost exactly two years old. But if you still have the Talyvel accessories I'd be interested in buying them from you. If you see this, please let me know by email or PM.

    Is your plan to drill down the 4x4mm slot with a 4mm drill bit? That's certainly what I would consider next. Is it correct that you can now reliably line up the key slots in the three gears?

    Hi Siggi,

    Congrats on your new machine. You can identify the construction year exactly from the serial number.

    IMO this is too far ahead. First you need to get it apart and inspect. Then you can plan the next stages.

    That doesn't seem like a good idea to me. In fact once you have this apart, it might be smart to cut a fresh key slot 180 degrees opposite the existing one, and to broach corresponding slots in the...

    This is not surprising! The 3rd gear can not move axially because it is blocked axially by the sheared-off key. It can rotate OK, because the key is sheared off. But it can not move axially...
