I'm getting ready to do a boring job on the mill and I am trying to set up
my boring head, Elliot 1/2 to 12" type, and the damn thing appears to be
seized up. I've removed the large grub screw from the side that would appear
to lock the slide and I've removed the large diameter 'plug' that threads
into the slide to retain the boring bar but I can't see how to disassemble
it further; it's been soaking in penetrating fluid for 2 days but it's still
stuck; the adjuster turns about 0.008" on its scale but then it goes tight
and the slide doesn't move.
The design is similar to the Excel one that G&M have at the moment
it doesn't have dovetails
but instead it has a cylinder that slides within the head.
If anyone knows how do dismantle this or, better still, has a copy of the
manual, I'd be most grateful.
