    Re: Lexan Window Thickness

    I’m certain that all walls around the machine have to be “crash barriers” even if it’s transparent.

    Re: Lexan Window Thickness

    Yea that’s why, if it were the route I was taking, what have used the *laminated* tempered glass rather than just standard tempered glass.

    What do you think about tempered and laminated glass?

    Lexan Window Thickness

    So upon getting my over-the-garage door storage built in my garage, one of the support beams had a meeting with the front window of my VMC40. Didn’t seem like it took much to shatter it so it is...

    Re: Fadal VMC 40 Way Cover Wiper Part Number

    Soooooo. I still haven't gotten replacement wipers installed on the machine. I bought a number of things from McMaster and was not able to find a similar material to the strips that I removed from...
  7. Re: Milacron Cintimatic 5VC-750 - Power Up Issue

    Unfortunately the owner died. The gentleman handling the estate doesn’t know much about the machine and is not a machinist. I’m just concerned about getting the tool holders out the tool changer as...
  8. Milacron Cintimatic 5VC-750 - Power Up Issue

    So went to buy tool holders from a guy that has them all loaded in this Milacron. The issue is we can’t get the machine to fully power up so we can jog the tool changer to unload the holders. We...
  9. Re: Indicator Resolution for Backlash Measurement

    Hey Ianagos
    Well I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I would rather have the tenths indicator for accuracy's sake. I don't want to guess if the hand is at .0002" or .0004". I guess the silver lining is...
  10. Indicator Resolution for Backlash Measurement

    I know people may say to “use the search feature” but I had a quick question. I’m trying to complete the setup for my VMC 40 and was wondering what resolution DTI you guys used to set your machines...

  12. Re: Future Fadal Purchase in Residential Garage

    I’m no engineer or CNC installer but I know there are plenty of people with 8K lb machines on residential slabs. I have a VMC 40 (older sibling of the 2216) in my garage with a vehicle that parks in...

    Re: VMC 40 Y-Axis Wiper....To add one or not?

    After about 15 minutes of scraping and vacuuming the built up chips under the Y-axis way cover, I was able to separate the two pieces. There was a metric ton of chips built up underneath the cover.

    Re: Fadal 4525 questions

    Here is a pic of my setup. Excuse the mess. From the pump, it goes through a filter and gets tee’d off. If I want to run flood coolant or the washdown hose, I close one valve and open the other. I’m...
  15. Re: Machine Balance/Rocking Due to Weight Shifting from the Table

    So I’m assuming the rear of the machine initially has to be risen up equally as much as the front is on the round bar stock. Otherwise I don’t see how this would work (for leveling front to rear that...

    Re: Fadal 4525 questions

    Why not just buy some perforated grating and cut those pieces out? That is all it is, nothing special.
    As far as washdown, I just plumbed the coolant pump to my filter system and tee’d a separate...

    Re: VMC 40 Y-Axis Wiper....To add one or not?

    Do you have a trick to removing the lower portion without bending the upper cover? I removed both of the way covers at one piece and it didn't look like the readily separate without bending the upper...

    VMC 40 Y-Axis Wiper....To add one or not?

    Hi Fadal Owners,
    My VMC 40 does not have a wiper for the Y axis way cover. This leads to chips falling on the lower cover, building up and falling on the ways. I am considering putting a way cover...
  19. Re: Machine Balance/Rocking Due to Weight Shifting from the Table

    Ok. Will do. I should probably use a jam nut as well to help prevent the leveling screws from backing out, correct? Here is a pic of the leveling screws for the Fadal. Kind of primitive. ...
  20. Re: Machine Balance/Rocking Due to Weight Shifting from the Table

    I've got two bars of the cold rolled steel under the machine right now. They are as long as the machine's casting 18-24" or so, 1" thick and 2.5" wide. The machine is about 8400lbs. The leveling...
  21. Machine Balance/Rocking Due to Weight Shifting from the Table

    Hi
    Got a problem. I was using the 2216 workout program to finally get a program running on my "new to me" VMC 40. The issue: when the table reaches the left or right side forward most point of...
  22. Re: OLD Bijur Mist Lubricator Issues/Parts/Literature/Manual

    Ok. So here is what I got:
    The 3144 did indeed replace the 2713. Looking over the old manual and parts list for the 2713, a lot of the parts are interchangeable with the newer lubricator. Here are...

  24. Re: OLD Bijur Mist Lubricator Issues/Parts/Literature/Manual

    Update: Now that it has been rather warm, the mister seems to be working fine. I guess it is sensitive to low temperatures. However, I still want to refurbish it.
  25. Re: OLD Bijur Mist Lubricator Issues/Parts/Literature/Manual

    Ok. Upon further research, I have a Model D2713. The latest Mist Lubricator model is the D3144(-2).
