As per the title can one still get parts for this machine.
Not that I am aware of, its pretty old. having said that, their pretty simple and wear parts could probably be made relatively easily.
What were you looking for, (I have one in the machine shop if you need any pics etc)
Hi MM Ive only gone and broke mine the thingy that pushes the top part forwards and back here is a pic
Pushing it to hard and to fast lol
get it welded back up. it could be plated as well to stiffen it up
Best you make a new one then!
Be hard pressed to find anyone alive who made machinery in the uk let alone parts stockists
Needs to be cast iron because of the slide
yeh I got a few ideas will be a good testing piece for me on the mill just got to find some thing thick enough
I might give it a go and weld it although I doubt if it will be as strong as before.
that's why I said you could drill and plate it as well if you had 2
You've nothing to lose by having a go
Its a bit of a tight space there's barely enough room to get me hands in there lol
get someone who can weld cast to do it for you
I have got a nice thick old forklift fork, its good and hard what do you recon
Only way you will get parts is find a second one . Or its make one. One of the reasons I try and buy 2 of each lol
What’s the slide made from?(bit that goes on crank pin)
Will have to check in the morn its a white metal i know that, once you get into it its a very basic design, I did think the bush would have been bronze or something like that but as yet not found any bushes anywhere on it.
The Alba 10 shapers are similar . The folk is cast. But there are oil ways that after a while get blocked up. It could be a case of insufficient oiling leading to binding that's caused the break.
I seen a guy in America, on youtube replacing the bush in the scotch yoke on a shaper, it was bronze bush that sits on the pin in the bull wheel. I don't see why you could not use steel, especially in a small lightly used machine like the 10m.
If the bush is a bearing material then no reason not to use steel
