    Measured the ones in my machine and they seem to be an odd size, 36 x 42 x 0.5 mm, the shaft of the bevel gear is 35mm so that could probably work too, but closest I've found is 35 x 45 mm

    I believe I have the same two manuals as you do, a 1950s and a 1960s version. To me both versions say bearing oil for this (points 10/11 and 12/13 in the newer manual).

    The older manual says to...

    Hey does anyone know why the Deckel Manual specifies the reservoir under the Z-axis nut should be bearing oil (gear box oil I assume) instead of way oil?

    I understand that you only use gearbox oil...

    Yes it should have a horizontal head, not sure if it has the lead screw for it though. You commented on this one in the for sale thread when I linked the for sale ad earlier on.

    Are you sure it was a replacement part? I assumed that my FP2 being older than the examples I have seen, was like this and deckel moved to making it triangular in later models. I am not sure for what...

    I have tested now with the vertical head off and that does lower the noise by maybe half of that with it on. So the additional noise seems to come from both the spur gear and also in the mesh of the...

    Yes I did say that, but turning the rotary 0/1 control moves a spur gear (referred to as idler gear in the linked thread) back so it engages with a lower spur gear.

    It's from this idler gear that...

    You mean the bevel gears engagement to the corresponding gear in the vertical head?

    Because I don't know if I can adjust the straight gears inside the long reach head any.

    In that case I'll just leave it as it is now then and hope the bearings seal is enough. Certainly it's better now than with that old ruined seal.
