    Eliminating Backlash on a Milling Machine Quill with a Vertical Linear Digital Scale



    There has been a fantastic article written by one of our customers who purchased the Vertical Linear Digital Scale for his milling machine to eliminate backlash.

    “On my machine, even with the spindle bearings correctly adjusted, there is around a millimetre (40 thou in imperial) of backlash, I assume this slack must be in the rack and pinion, the effect of this is that the quill clamp always needs to be slightly tightened putting additional pressure on the rack and pinion making it harder to move the quill. Failure to clamp the quill can result in a chattering cutter that can drift up and down when machining.

    Our Ultrasonic Cleaner Features on BBC1’s The Repair Show



    As seen on Episode 24, Series 4 of The Repair Shop - Music box maestro, Stephen Kember is on hand to welcome an unusual item into the barn: a wooden bench from Switzerland, with two carved bears, proudly standing sentinel on either side of a seat that plays a tune when sat upon.

    Our Ultrasonic Cleaner features in this episode to clean the musical mechanism (called the Guvnor) which helps regulate the speed the mechanism turns. Stephen says; “This is a lovely and gentle way of shaking all of the debris out of the Guvnor and all of the congealed oil out of the bearings. It will do a lovely job and there will be no abrasion, no risk from cleaning of scrubbing, it’s just going to do its job.” As the musical mechanism is then taken out after the cleaning cycle has finished, Stephen says; “We’ve got a beautifully sparkly clean Guvnor…
