    I think this firm called Beijing Jingdiao makes their own controls but they look like Haas controls. They also have their own CAD/CAM software. https://www.marktplaats.nl/v/doe-het-zelf-en-verbouw/draaibanken/m2004560782-fanuc-robodril-d21mia5

    Second Deckel FP4MK I ever had also comes from the UK

    I always thought that major companies mainly in Germany bought these machine for education of their junior machinists. ( called "Ausbilding " I think) They take it very serious and buy the best manual machines for that. Not so in my country, they teach you the CNC stuff right away and manual...

    One for the boneyard

    To old for professional users, to bulky for home or hobby users. These machines are in no mans land. Perhaps some demand in Eastern-Europe. But please let us know how the auction went.

    FS - Schaublin 150 lathe w/tooling.

    I don't know the Riten IIRC centers. But I know SFJ also made centers for Sandvik. These are very good too. Maybe you mentions these? There are also 1 or 2 Japaneese manufactures that are (from what I've heard) even better the Swiss. But I don't know their names.

    Gear backlash

    The answer requires understanding gears, and if you understand gears you would't have asked the question.... In one word, Wildhaber is the answer.

    Deckel FP3–should I buy from Germany?

    "Überholt" means only one thing to me that it is a full rebuild like Singer does. "Teiluberholt" means a respray to me.But I might be wrong. I do not know the firm but Stefan Gotteswinter bought his Deckel there. I stay away from Kai-Tec.
