    Dear Alan,

    well done! Smart to rescue the cracked bevel gear, since it's on the hand crank it will probably be fine for the next century like that.

    When it was finished I sent Franz Singer a photo. The next day he called me. Loosely translated from Barvarian what he said was, "Nice job -- but you could have matched the colors better. You left...

    (A) If the spindle SK40 end is sitting are a hard solid table, and the quill is "hanging in the air" then you are right. The force is transmitted from the inner shell of the...

    Update:

    After dinner I went out to measure the radial play again. It was significantly less than before at the back bearing, about 6 microns instead of 16. So the bearing race must have finally...

    Thanks for the additional details.

    Did the 1/2" lever add another 300mm to the length, so effectively your lever for rotation was about 400mm long? Then 20kg/200N of force gives you 80 Nm. I also...

    More likely he was being polite and didn't want to tell me that I was a Dummkopf. Might also be my inability to understand Barvarian (as opposed to German).

    Hi Thanos,



    Does this mean that the large force is needed to fully compress the spring washer, but is NOT needed to push the bearing against the spacer?

    Approximately how long is the handle...

    I always wondered what the "E" stood for, thank you for explaining! I'm sure it's just as you said, they simply left out the horizontal spindle and the quill adjusting wheel.

    Hi Thanos,



    Thanks. I made one for painting, but then converted it to a 6010 bearing puller, then lent it to Karl. I'm just going to use some masking tape.



    That's reassuring, thank you!
