Bluto 1790 Posted October 14, 2015 Share #1 Posted October 14, 2015 (edited) I decided to treat myself to an MF70 milling maching and it arrived today. Everything seems OK, with the exception of what I feel may be a little more play in the worktable than should be 'normal'? I've inserted a couple of photos below and I'd be grateful if anyone can explain exactly what I should do to minimise the amount of play. (I've read and re-read the instructions that came with the machine but there isn't much advice of the kind I need.) I first felt the up and down movement when winding the traverse handle at the right hand end of the table and without having measured with a micrometer (which I don't have) I estimate the amount of vertical movement to be around 2mm - 3mm at each end. I imagine there must be adjustment to minimise this, but I don't want to start slackening and adjusting screws and locknuts without knowing exactly what I should be doing. (B.T.W. ~ the worktable IS firmly attached to the base with the 4 allen-head set screws provided.) So your help will be greatly appreciated . . . thanks in advance!
