Hi Simon

If you look at this old picture from anglo-swiss tools, I guess they were never painted:

The lead screw oiler wheel is an impressive piece.   Always loved the Schaublins...expensive buggers...Hope you got tooling with it Simon.

W20?

Dave - sorry for slow reply, yes got lots of collets, chucks, tool holders, centres, face-plates etc.  I'll post some pictures of all that shortly.

So the last few weeks have been spent on painting and then re-assembling - seems to take ages to mask all the bright work / un-painted areas and then apply several coats of paint.  Putting the saddle back together was a challenge - there is a definite order and you seem to need multiple pairs of hands to engage the half nut casting with the engagement lever and then spent some time adjusting all the gibs - three for the saddle and the one on the cross-slide - do like the tapered gibs with the axial adjustment screws though.

Here's some before and after pictures;

Thanks Bill  ;D

Two other jobs done today;

The two drawers have locks (removed in the photo) but no key, took one of the locks to the local key cutting shop and got a suitable blank key.  By taking the lock apart I could file the blank to suit the 5 internal levers and get a working key.

The lever controlling the lead screw forward and reverse had more play than I'd like and it was evident the key had worn by about 0.3mm, feeling lazy I flipped the key to get the unworn side and bonded it back in with 648.  Time will tell whether this dodge works long term!

Simon.
