Drabsch Faceting machine, help required.
« on: September 02, 2019, 10:30:14 AM »
Are there any Drabsch, LWD engineering facet machine users here?

I acquired one at the weekend, I have just about everything figured out but I am at a loss as to what the two dial indicators are doing, both were loose in their mounting so I have to figure out how they are supposed to work, then make them do that.

A quick tutorial on using the vernier scale would help too.

There are two among the members of the Victor Harbor Faceting Group.
I shall ask them to have a look at your post and see if they can help you.
However, it may take some time as one is in Andamooka at the moment and the other is very busy.
Regards,
Ghost.

Thanks Ghost
No hurry, I think I have figured the vernier so just the dial indicators.
