So while investigating a alignment issue with the tail stock on my DSG lathe I found that 4 needle bearings in the clamping mechanism had been damaged and the only explanation is the lathe has at some point been lifted by the tailstock . Initially I slid the tailstock off to make sure they was no dirt stuck to the ways causing the issues, Not an easy feat as it weighs in excess of 100kg. When I put the tailstock back on I noticed some bearing rollers left on the bench , so back off if came and I found this: It’s easily repairable, but should have never happened, and also begs the question ware was the sling at the other end of the machine? I have read a number of times about machinery dealers being less than sympathetic when moving machines. What are people’s experiences of such things?
