Anyone know where I could download operation and maintenance manuals for a HLV-H ?

I will get new paper copies when I get the chance but just want to know some basic TLC info ATM

Cheers Irving,

I saw that site, but must have overlooked the User manual page.

Come back in August :)

Actually it looks worse then it is. I won't be stripping it down completely (unless I find something very wrong) just cleaning off the congealed coolant and wire-brushing off the rust.

The biggest pain (or expense) is that the four/or five change-wheel gears are missing. Even before I discovered this I had been thinking about an electronic leadscrew idea (i.e. using a servo motor to drive the lead screw phase locked to the spindle - like the latest/last model HLV's) to cut metric and english threads.

Next job is getting the thing (it weighs the better part of 3/4 tonne) off the trailer and into the garage - Time to think like an Egyption.

So do I :LOL:

I'm having to juggle things around to find room. My Ducati (motorcycle) going to have to go in the conservatory (not a universally popular move around here!) . I can't sell or move my little southbend 416 yet 'cos I may need it to fix the HLV!

Well, it's in the garage now...

(BTW that's my older brother Fred lending some muscle and Acro-jacks)


Another request for info:

Anyone have (or know of) a manual for a Sony Magnescale LH-10 DRO ?

Or even just a clear picture of the front panel? I'm trying to work out what the buttons do, but since I can't read the legends it almost impossible. I'll make a new overlay for the buttons once I've worked out what they do.

This (http://www.industeq.com/cart/p-5185-sony-manual-lh10.aspx) any use?

or even cheaper, try asking this guy (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/showthread.php?p=995715) for a copy

Thanks Guys, very useful :)

I've just been in contact with Sony's distributor, Stanmatic Precision (UK) Limited (Axis Group). They couldn't be more helpful :) They appear to be sending me a paper copy of the manual, gratis.

[edit] BTW Irving,

Would a photo blog of the renovation, in the Lathe Build Logs forum, be OK ?
