    Default Shizuoka AN-S, Mach 3 retrofit

    Hi, I just brought home a well used Shizuoka AN-S, which has been converted at some point to run Mach 3 with Tormach Nema 34 motors and Geckodrives. I've stripped off the electronics and am in the process of giving everything a deep, deep cleaning.

    Posting here because there aren't a huge number of these around but since I see postings from time to time I wanted to chime in and let folks know I am working on rehabbing one if anyone is interested.

    Thanks!

    Looks like a major project. I'll be watching your progress I have an AN-S sitting in my shop also, did a complete retrofit on it. If I can be of any help just let me know.

    Thanks!

    Your's looks a bit cleaner than mine. I've had it sitting outside for several weeks and probably have 6 hours spent just pressure washing it.

    Did you find all the fasteners to be a weird combination of SAE and metric? As in a bolt could have SAE threads but a metric head, etc?

    Waiting to see more pictures

    It does have a combination of SAE and metric, but the SAE are all in the tool changer that was made in the USA. I don't recall having any fasteners like that on the machine, but I never really paid much attention. Any fasteners that were removed just went back in the same hole on assembly. I do have some 1/4-20's with 10mm hex heads in the drawer.

    All I have right now is my rebuild of the oilers, finished today...amazingly after a thorough cleaning (ultrasonic cleaner, sand blaster, wire wheel, etc) they both look and work great.
