Thanks Pat,
Maybe it is the fish.  ;D
Time, wish I had more time to finish this one. Well it'll be done before the next season starts. That's a promise.

Thanks guys!
Well valve parts where in mind when I saw this one, was browsing for lathe tools, and this popped up.
Was for sale at scrapmetal price so I didn't think for a second and just bought it.
Control pc had a broken hard drive, managed to salvage the WinNC folder and machine data.

Got wiring diagram and parts diagram from Emco yesterday, and I need to get the parts changer robot arm off the control logic. Its messing with the automatic chuck drive.
It was a production machine for one company that went under, was used to make plastic gears and nozzles.

So sidetracking this a bit more, electronics work. Spindle bearings are shot, ways need grinding but she moves. Not bad for what I paid for it.  :D

Should be quite an easy fix, the bed fits on my mill and it has a tilting head, I can fix the ways myself.
Need to measure how much the saddle has worn from the v groove, I was thinking about milling a slot and making a new v out of brass bearing stock. Shimming it in place and securing with setscrews.

Time will tell, how I go about it, depends how worn everything is. All of this would have been avoided if the previous operator had filled the oiler when empty.
I might make a new thread about the machine, maybe.

Wow, took much more time to get back to this project than I thought. Luckily the Emco is up and running good  :D
Did finally manage to find time to make some barrel ports.

Neat stuff there Marko !!! I wish I had some toys like that to play with, very nice indeed.  I need to talk my brother into taking me on another tour through the mold shop he helped a friend of ours put together through the past several years, the last time I seen Paul (mold shop owner) was over at my brothers shooting my SPA M16 soon after I bought it, he really got a charge out of it.

Good to see someone is back at it...and nice to hear the Emco is up and running too. You've been busy lol.

I like the way you cut that radius. 8) Don't think I've seen it done that way before, but in hindsight it makes a good bit of sense.

Bob
I wish it would, but no it's  just a lathe. This was done on the mill with manual dividing head. I have not had the time to setup it as fourth axis and drive it with a servo.

Thanks guys, time is very rare this days. Too much reading and too little machining.

Bolt starting to take shape, used and old shock absorber shaft for the material, the hard chrome surface sure is nice.

Where did you learn Finnish?

My Computer speaks the Finnish but I live in Minnesota and I am familiar with the way Fins think and act !     There are LOTS of Fin's here.   This State was populated in the 1850's by Scandinavians.  Finlanders, Danes, Norwegians and Swedes.  The French Canadians were already here before the Scandinavians arrived. The Danes, Swedes and Norwegians were mostly farmers while the Finlanders  moved to the North with the French Canadians and American Indians doing trapping, hunting and woodworking for a living. There are towns and Villages in Minnesota that are all Finnish, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.  Some still speak the language of their forefathers too. I apprenticed as a Repair Machinist under a Master Repair Machinist that was a Finlander. His Name was Uno Maki. He was the most talented Craftsman that I have ever known. He was Highly Skilled at working with wood or working with metal.  He was the person that taught me how to Correctly scrape machine ways, at no-less than 25 bearing points per (6,45cm squared) square inch.  My wife is of Danish-Norwegan-French Canadian decent.  Her family were amongst the earliest Scandinavians to come to Minnesota.     My family was much different.   On my fathers side they are Irish and on my mothers side they were Comanche Indian mixed blood. There are two towns, close to where I live, that are Finnish towns, they are named Bruno and Beroun. You would most likely feel at home here.  Minnesota looks a lot like Finland.  We still have ice on our lakes and some snow in the forests but it will all be gone soon.                 

My Best Regards & Best Wishes to You Sir      -        Tom Wood

Oh my, that sure makes me speechless. A fellow that can scrape machine ways does get my respect! That is a rare talent this days.
It is always nice to find out what people do at the other edge of the world.
