    He may be a little preoccupied. I remember him saying he had a kid on the way a few months back. Attending to mom and diaper duty usurps hobby Bridgeports, I'm afraid.

    Awesome that it seems to have worked itself out SA! Also, your splines/teeth looks great to me. Looks like nice, sharp edges with minimal wear to me. Glad you didn't need to drop $600 smackers on it....
  5. Sorry but I cannot see any of the attachments...

    Sorry but I cannot see any of the attachments provided. Not sure what the problem is, but I can't see them. The alignment pins I am referring to - not the castle nuts alluded to later - are addressed...

    Also, I meant to add - if you visually inspected both of your splined engagement teeth and they looked fine? I wouldn't drop $600 (AUD or USD) to replace them. I'd be looking for something else being...

    You can try "floating" the head by loosening the nuts that secure the upper head to the lower part. Then run the head with the splines engaged and tap it lightly around with a plastic or rubber...

    One thing I didn't see in all the discussion about persistent VFD head vibration: The diameter of the motor shaft is an important item to check while replacing the plastic bushings. Over time the...

    Based on what I could see in the pics MK posted, it looks like he has chromed ways and most of the flaking is still intact. Therefore, unless I missed something along the way, I don't think his...

    Looks outstanding MK. Top notch work as usual. Whoever gave you that mill will be kicking themselves if they get to see it now.

    I notice all of the pictures are orientated so that the widest dimension is always horizontal. I suspect if you take all of your pictures with the phone sideways, even if not optimal for picture...

    Outstanding writeup and detail Randalthor. Thanks for sharing. I keep meaning to order way covers but haven't yet. I wanted the nice pleated ones but man they're expensive. And I don't think you have...

    One thing I forgot to mention, is that you can actually call Wells Index directly and ask them about lifting methods. I was pretty close to buying a 747 myself last year, but the one I was looking at...

    From memory the 747 comes in around 2300 lbs, so your forklift should be plenty able to pick it up. I would think if it's under a sturdy pallet and very securely fastened to that pallet, you should...

    True, it doesn't brake the spindle, but for my purposes that's what I call my "E-Stop."

    There are different ways to rig up an E-stop on a VFD. One way is to run a button with two wires to discrete inputs on the VFD that are programmed to stop the VFD output - but that method does not...

    Sounds a lot better. Still some noise at high speed traverse. But maybe those Bridgy units were just a little noisier? Actually mine makes some noise at high speed too. Also, lubricating the gears...

    I have one of these, so not familiar with the Bridgy version.

    Offhand, if the motor is easy to remove, I'd take it off and see what...

    Sounds fantastic, problem solved. And I agree, these machines just make a certain amount of noise, especially at the highest speed. Also, as you use the machine, I suspect it will quiet down even...

    I just used the existing two holes that were there for the original switch box and drilled corresponding holes in the metal utility box. I didn't want to drill any holes into the aluminum housing...

    Yeah I saw where you guys were talking about the pros and cons of how much grease should be in there. I'm pretty sure my machine came from the factory packed with grease about the way yours was...
