Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors

1 Answer

Need to get my good old DRO to work again.

I have a Mitutoyo PLL32L ( S/no. 900185 ) Linear scale fitted to a Colchester Chipmaster Lathe with cross slide and bed scales. It used to work 100% before my workshop move. Now when I plug it all in all ( after 2 years in storeage) I get are rows of ------------ on both the upper and lower X & Y readouts. There has been no damage to the equipment, and it shows this same display with or without the scales connected!!.

Try to clean up the linear scale first, maybe the light did not reflect because of dirt or dust

What is the problem of error E02D03


Dear
It's a carriage jam.remove any paper in the movement of the carriage path.wipe the rail clean.make sure that everything is clean and that there are no loose wires or anything touching the rail.make sure there is no slack in the belt. If there is remount it.

If there is not the problem there is no paper clog, the belt is tight, the motor may be slipping. Then most likely you need to replace the carriage motor.Or you may need to replace the linear scale or the linear encoder.It's likely that the linear scale was bumped while loading paper.

Hope this may help you to resolve the problem.
Thanks.

Mitutoyo 543-256 linear error of 0.028mm over full 12mm stroke. Repeatability is perfect, mechanically is perfect. Is there a re-calibration procedure?


Ensure your testing procedure is perfect. If your testing procedure is proven, then you will need to send it for repair. At that point, either your scale or grid assembly is damaged or requires adjusting.

Instructions for changing an ammco 3000 brake lathe to a 4000. Parts needed?


Yes, an Ammco 3000 brake lathe can be converted over to a 4000 model--most any year 3000.... preferably the later years after 1970.

The problem with some of the early 60's models is that the cross-feed bore is not perfectly perpendicular to the spindle.

If you convert one of these models, you will cut the rotor at an angle and then jam the machine.

Later models can easily be converted.

You will need...

1) A complete disc feed gearbox.
2) A driven pulley (the big one) set-up for a with a pin drive.
3) A complete spindle lock assembly for the Infimatic gearbox.
4) Possibly need a longer guide bar for the cross-freed. If you have a round guide bar, this is possibly long enough. If you have a "Double-D" guide bar (flat on each side), you most likely will need a longer bar.
5) A complete twin-cutter, with tool guides, tool holders, knobs, etc.

We have all the parts you need for a conversion--or we can convert it expertly for you...

I have a mitutoyo dial depth gauge. How do I use and read this?


A dial depth gage should have a set of depth stems. they are in 1" increments. to change the stem, first using a scale, measure the depth of the hole you are checking. Find the stem that falls in that range. remove the cap on the top of the unit, pull the existing stem out and replace it with the stem you need to reach the bottom of the hole. replace the screw-on cap. Set the cross bar of the body on the face of the part. Gently turn the barrel until the stem touches the bottom. the barrel has a 1" range. The numbers represent .1". The lines between the numbers represent .025". One turn of the dial equals .025" Add the length of the stem, the number on the barrel, the number on the dial and the number diall. Example, If the hole measures between 3" and 4" i.e. (3-1/8")start by installing the 3 to 4" stem. Turn the barrel so it reads "0". place the cross bar of the body so it touches the face perpendicular to the hole. Gently turn the barrel of the unit until it stops at the bottom of the hole. Add 3" plus the number on the barrel (.1"), the number of graduations on the barrel, and the number on the dial (.023"). The reading is 3.123". If you know your decimal equivalents, you will know that the hole is .002" short of 3.125" (or 3-1/8" deep.

N12 Bostitch comp nailer, need a few inner parts. Where can they be located? An inside rubber piece fell apart.


I have seen these parts available on ebay. They are using parts from old Unicatch roofing nailer and Max cn55 coil nailer. I have an old craftsman lathe and cut parts from other nailers to fit. This is hit and miss and does not work as well as max parts. You can be creative or just buy parts from ebay. Good luck

Does the seat off a linear chassis fit the classic chassis. I have bought a classic sleepover and want a spare seat to use on the moses stand that came with it. The only seats i can find are off a linear...


Hi, i bought my linear freeway combination in 2006 and they were sold separately as you could choose which chassis you wanted. So they used to be interchangable but I would email silvercross to check before you buy anything.x
