    Hi .RC,

    Very impressive collection, I wish I knew what I was looking at... It will take me a while to figure out what is what...

    What wheels do you mostly use?

    Regards
    Ray

    Hi .RC,

    What's the cream coloured thing that looks like a rocket launcher?



    Looks big for an air spindle?

    Hi Harty,

    I reckon Rocky would be a good place to hold it... pity it's so far from the center of the universe though...

    I did find a lot of Walter setup documentation on-line, that goes into a fair amount of detail on angles and setup procedures. There is a lot of detail to learn.

    Have you got a list of what you want from sopko?

    Regards
    Ray

    Hi .RC,

    Thanks for that I've ordered the cd. Looks like just what I need.

    I'm currently just cleaning up around the wheel head, (while waiting for bearings to arrive) and getting paint off the oil caps that were painted over, and notice that a lot of the reference surfaces have been painted over as well, so I'm gradually getting the paint off those as well.

    Do you have a picture of your wheel head?

    Regards
    Ray

    Well, it''s almost back together...

    Here is the cross slide screw arrangement, for future reference. New timken tapered roller bearings.



    The repaired pin on the cross slide nut.. a bit of thread lock on the grub screws. The pin is a nice tight press fit into the nut.


    The saddle is back on, the screw is fitted after the saddle goes back.



    New bearings for the table guides... Phil, I measured the rollers, and the front rollers were 11.603 +-0.001 and the back rollers were 11.711+-0.001 I didn't check every single roller, just about 10 or so around the chain.. seemed pretty consistent.

    Can't think why the front and back would be different..? Also started filling the base of the table with oil. There are oil wicks going down to the cross slide ways from the table reservoir.



    The table is back on, and ready for a clean up with scotch brite.


    Next job is a proper clean up.. all the handles etc..

    Regards
    Ray

    Here's a safety tip for anyone restoring old machine tools...

    I pulled the spindle motor and the workhead motor out to get my SIL to rewire them for delta. As soon as I touched the wires the insulation crumbled to dust.

    If I had powered it up.. zap!...

    Lucky.

    Regards
    Ray
