FLUID POUR & SET
Head removed to expose cast iron ways.
Machine needs head bearing replacement.
Jackscrews are prepared by gluing pieces of brass shim
onto the screw to protect the cast iron ways of the column.
Holes are then tapped in the bearing surface
of the head slide to receive jackscrews.
Prepared adhesion surface. This surface has been roughened and cleaned.
Also notice the four jackscrews used for alignment (see arrows).
Moglice putty is mixed out on a clean metal sheet.
Moglice Putty Hard is troweled onto the head slide and
slightly crowned to the center of each bearing surface.
Final positioning and checking of the head
to the column and then allowed to cure.
The following day after the head is jacked away from the column,
excess Moglice is trimmed using a die grinder and resin cut off wheel.
A 100% bearing surface of Moglice. Oil grooving, lubrication
ports opened and spotting must be done prior to final assembly.
