Mazak M4 lathe. Had to make special tools and drill out bunged up bolts. We
took the chuck off trying to figure out why we're only getting about half
the stroke ,0.100" vs. 0.190" that the jaws are supposed to have. I'll be a
cleaning the whole unit up tommorrow. Swarf plugging things is at least part
of the problem. "The Kid" is going to find/modify all new special metric
bolts for everything.
Our best guess at this point is the draw-pipe needs to be shorter. By
tightening up the threads at the hydraulic cylinder. Our question, how do
you set the length of this properly?
Or, is there another possible reason for not getting the full stroke?
