The problem is several times lately I have found that the wheel
wasn't cutting anymore when I downfed. The first two times I just
redressed the wheel and took about .005 off. I was almost down to
depth and only needed a thousand to findish and retouched the work and
finished the job with no more problems. Today I tried going down
another .001 and didn't cut. I tried another .001 and nothing.
Its a Boyar Schultz that we got on Ebay) The only time I ever found a
situation like this was on an old hobbing machine and I figued it had a
flat spot on the lead screw then. I wondered if there was an
alternative explanation for this. How would I check this.
Getting it fixed is not an option as this company has no money(except
for the bosses toys)
