      Been making chips yesterday and today.  Sure do like the new machine.  Making brackets to mount the DROs  Have been using full 1500 most of the time.  Will be wanting faster and hope there will not be too much trouble when the two speed motor gets here.
       
      I have kept the factory oil in up to now.  Wanted to give it a chance to work things through before I dump it.  Any suggestions on a grad or syn to use?  Book says to use 68 weight oil.  Have never heard of that before.
       
      Also any suggestions where to get way brushes or squeegees?  I don't like the fact there is nothing on the front side.  Will probably need for the back too.  Think that the x axis dro will get in the way of the rear one.

        Tom,
        I have been using 68 gear lube in my Enco.  I got it at the bulk oil suppler.  Coneco I think.   5 gals lasts a long time.

          Thomas,

           

          Each importer puts their own switch box on the machine.  I have the Penn Tools version.  It’s a rotary switch mounted to the left side of the head.  The switch is a continuous rotary unit that has 8 positions.  Starting at 12 o’clock:  off, forward low, off, forward high, off, reverse high, off, reverse low.  That completes the circle and the cycle begins again.  If you really want a photo, let me know and I’ll email you one.  The box is orange and about 3.5” square on the face and about 6 inches deep.  The knob is a black pointer unit similar to something from a Si-Fi movie in the 1950’s.

           

          David

          Those of you that have the 220v 3ph 2 speed version, how do you switch motor
          speeds?  Would you happen to have a picture of the controls?

          That is the machine that I ordered but a standard single speed came in.  The
          shop is suppose to be getting a 2 sp motor for me to swap.  Just want to
          make sure that I do not do anything to the machine that might get in the way
          of the 2 speed switch.

          Thanks
