Enjoy.

Thanks! But can we *please* get back to the ballscrews soon? :) I'm curious about what's wrong with them, making them so hard to turn. I hope it's just some gunked up fat and not any serious damage.

In all seriousness: it's interesting to see also how you handle moving the machines around - a crowbar, blocks of wood and a pallet jack seems to go a long way! Just after you got the lathe through the door you did some manouvering that made me think "he's done that before!". Just before you told us about towing 180 ton airplanes on ice . :)

Yeah, I still need to pull the Z ball screw, and them strip, clean and relube them.

That move went better than I feared.

With a long crowbar you can "walk" things sideways.
Using CNC nomenclature: insert the bar at C = -90, raise machine by Z -N, move bar to C+90, Z = 0 and repeat.

This is a beast for that sort of thing if you are in the UK www.screwfix.com/p/roughneck-gorilla-wrecking-bar-48/29330
(I wonder if it their best-rated tool?)

So use the crowbar heel as a pivot point?

That blue crowbar I bought is similar. I brought the Boley and DoAll in with just an even smaller crow bar and rollers. The pallet jack sure makes it easier and faster.

Enjoyed watching another U- Tube Schaublin video . Sure miss the Maho videos , any chance of more Maho action ?
Have you thought about having a live feed ? Maybe have a viewer poll for live feed . :laugh:

I have used a aquarium small air pump to bubble the cleaning fluid during extended bearing or parts soaking . It provided a little agitation to the cleaning fluid over a lengthy soaking period .
Have read some of the concerns about using ultrasonic cleaning tanks for bearings . Always wondered if the bearings are in a preloaded state would the cautions still apply ? What do watch repair places use when cleaning a Patek Philippe Aquanaut ?

Looks like something you could print a pattern an cast up with the foundry .

I haven't powered up the poor Maho for about 8 weeks now. Sooner or later I'll have to make up so new motor mounts though.

Good point about preloaded bearings in ultrasound. I have an ultrasound arriving next week, but only 10L, so the whole spindle wont fit.
