View Full Version : Sieg X3 backlash...

20-10-2010, 02:51 PM
Ok, I'm a complete newb learning on a manual Sieg X3. Today I'm trying to figure out how I can reduce backlash. I have yet to strip it down and clean it but looking at the prep guide this will take me a long time...

Measured backlash is: X: 0.26mm, Y: 0.2mm, Z: 0.09mm.

Can this mill be adjusted to reduce backlash, and if so any pointers of how to actually do it would be greatly appreciated!
