I have a Takumi v32n milling machine and the drive belt for the spindle has broke .The only things is that the Machine Tool bulider are not very helpful. I need help changing the belt that goes on the spindle. So does anyone know anything about this machine that can help me? The main problem is getting the belt off and on ,I think I can get the rest of the job after that . It looks like I might have to take the spindle half way apart just to get the belt off. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I talked to the tech from the factory and he said that I will have to take the spindle out to get the old belt off and the new one put on. He said that there are two diffrent ways the spindle may be installed . The 1st way is that it is in one peice and after putting blocks of wood underneath jog down the z axis and undo the 8 bolts that go around the spindle then ,when the bolts are loose jog up in z and the spindle will slowly drop out .This is the 1st way, he also said that on some later and larger models the spindle is in many diffrent parts and this he said is the 2nd way the spindle may be installed.It depends on what style and year model ,So I gave him all the info and he should be reponding back soon If anyone has any help please help I have no clue on how to start this job but it sounds like I am on the right track If so any help would be nice THANKS
