I'm busy trying to turn my rats nest wiring of the homemade rotary converter to respectable looking setup.
Since I got the machine I've been trying to learn all I can by looking and thinking ,;-) since I can find no manuals. This is the first time I've even seen a full size mill.
When I look at the knee travel, and the tables proximity to the quill, it seems that the table will hit the tool holder long before the knee runs out of travel. That makes me think there might have been a riser under the ram, at some time in the past.
Can you tell me what the attachment of the ram base to the main casting looks like?
There are four stout bolts that appear to hold it in place. I stuck my camera inside the base casting and took the picture below. What do those six bolts do?
What I'm really trying to figure is what I'd need to do to construct a riser.
The diameter of the ram base is 15". If I found a 15" diameter riser from another machine, what kind of work might I need to do to it?
Thanks for any and all info,
