The first tests done when machine arrived at the workshop discovered an issue on the geometry of the ram —Y axis—. The ram has a sensible play in some positions that can be measured when moving it on the Y axis. This will be one of the most interesting problems to repair during this rebuilding.
The last summer I spent some time to design and make some cabinets to store my material under the worktable. I had no time to report about before. In this post I will show some details.
In this post I talk about the maintenance of the Schaublin 13 table feed gearbox. It is easy to identify because it protrudes the back of the machine in an unusual way.
A list of interesting resources around the net about Schaublin 13 milling machines. Permanent work in progress 😄.
In this post I show the maintenance of the Schaublin 13 Reeves drive. Together with the main gearbox, it constitutes the milling machine power drive. You will see how I dismantle, clean, examine and service it.
Long time ago I bought a Schaublin 13 milling machine to Peter at Veltman Machines. This was to replace my Cincinatti Chomienne FP30. The machine remained stored for many months and finally it arrived the time to face its refurbishing.
In this post I face the service of the motors and rework the electrical conducts.
I made a solid platform from welded steel profiles to allow the Klaiber to be carried by a manual pallet truck. I left some images just for others inspiration 😄.
During the last months I’ve been helping Luke Rickert —of Elisenberg Engineering— to move forward a foundry project. I had a limited experience on foundry business that comes from the rebuilding of a cabinet saw and Luke’s project became a really interesting experience.
All begins when Luke asked me about foundries in Catalonia. He currently lives in southern France and he is really close to catalan speaking lands.
