    deckel fp1 table/leadscrew removal

    Having just gone thru this (though my nut came off), you are right to think there is no benefit to remove the nut if your lead screw threads and or 51106 thrust bearings are not going to be replaced. Just make sure you clean the bearings & 4 races well and relube as you reassemble. By the way...

    FP1 Z Nut Sources

    Thanks but link did not work, do you have any further info? Hopefully only one nut is needed in this configuration and then longer term a matched nut and screw is the goal. If the wear rate is too high, then tap and bar stock is definitely the way to go...but I hope to go down final route...

    FP1 Z Nut Sources

    Interesting to find that Misumi has LH 25-5 threaded bronze bushings. They also sell the 25mm LH leadscrew for about $100 but no mention of fit spec or how it is manufactured so maybe great or maybe poor backlash, but certainly 100x better than what I have and for not too much investment to make...

    FP1 Z Nut Sources

    Hi Ross, Yes to having lathe, but in inches and food set of tools, measurement and lifting stuff. I can coble any other items needed, except probably a proper size surface plate. I am at 18x18". (Edit) Lifting is limited, maybe 500# and not mobile. The OEM level replacement looks to be extremely...

    FP1 Z Nut Sources

    Well, the plot thickens...and as probably expected by many of you, the x axis screw is FUBAR'd in the middle section. Not sure how I missed it, but with the good looking nut I did not notice the male threads do not even resemble an ACME profile, even from a distance. The brand new looking x nut...

    FP1 Z Nut Sources

    Hi Folks, I am unexpectedly working on a new to me imported to US FP1. It was reported in good shape at the time of sale... not so with all kinds of issues such as gibs found to be loose, damaged and worn with heavy oil, but it at least it felt smooth. Everything has now been stripped...

    Howdy, I am up in the South Bay and have some interest...has this thing been run and does actuate ok (no broken gears or) and based on the scoring, do you think it was run dry? It certainly looks tired, just need to be sure the bones are ok. I can stop by sometime early next week.

    Looked at a unicorn FP4CCT with weird owner

    a**h**s are fine if they start and end that way. It is the ones who fake it till they make it or ask you to trust them and then lie, cheat or steal on they way out. Those are the ones who make the world a sh++ty place. These true a*8*&^s often know their stuff and don't have time to BS you or...

    Deckel Head material

    Forgive me, but what advantage does the Rusnok setup have over installing the HS Deckel head? I am on the lookout for the HS head, but wonder what the limitations might be?

    B&S Grinder Double V Reconditioning

    Quite the device you have here, but I think far above my measly budget. Thank you for the offer.

    B&S Grinder Double V Reconditioning

    Thanks for the inputs and for offer to call. I think most of it is clear in my head. It seems removing the factory unworn ridges is not a concern, but it seems like cutting the umbilical, since there is no going back. I will cobble together all of the above...and get a few more levels. A long...

    B&S Grinder Double V Reconditioning

    I can already tell overscrapping would feel like scratching fingernails on a chalkboard...(guess that dates me) thanks for the cautionary note. Fortunately these parts are relatively light. There is still one open question, do we start at the center of travel and move to the ends or start at one...

    B&S Grinder Double V Reconditioning

    Excellent, thank you Richard for both the comments and the images, I can read the copies just fine. Your last comment has caught me off guard, but I think I will plow ahead for now and make something better than it is now and ackowledge that it will not be prefect in the end. I have done a fair...

    B&S Grinder Double V Reconditioning

    Thank you Richard for the quick reply. I instantly makes sense to start with the longer element first, however I do not yet have a long enough Camelback for this purpose and hoping/searching to find something at a local auction. I see that I will paying much more for a straight edge than I did...
