    Just an update: the machine headstock is at the spindle repair facility in the US and they informed me that they will be tearing it down soon. Will post again when I know more.

    I have see in the past that a drain for the spindle labyrinth seal can get clogged and cause bearing failure. Have you checked by the firewall under the spindle to see if yours has the drain and that is is clean?

    Best regards,

    Experience is what you get just after you needed it.

    Hi Okuma Wiz

    I had another person mention that too. I am not aware of any drain and the headstock is at a repair facility right now so I cannot verify. There was a know problem with a bearing on certain machines and OKUMA sent out a bulletin to distributors (I was able to read it the other day). Are you aware that they had this issue? You should check out PM forum OKUMA LATHE LB-3000 SPINDLE REPAIR.

    Although the drain comes out of the spindle housing, the area that got clogged was built into the firewall and can be seen without the spindle if you have it. If there is nothing but straight firewall with no drain “catcher” built in then your model maybe doesn’t have it.

    I was not aware of the bearing issue.
