Hardinge SP T42 turret air purge


Nov 12, 2020
We have a new Hardinge Super Precision T42 here, and I'm trying to install a couple of the live tooling heads we have. This thing has a nasty air purge inside the turret, and it's incredibly difficult to even get the head in the turret far enough to get a bolt in it. Anyone know how to disable the air purge during the install?
Turn the air down. That is way too much air to the turret. Mine has a 1/4 line going right into the turret top cover. Very low pressure. Not sure what the regulators set to, but it's probably a couple psi.
