Just learned that my bearing were delivered at my work. I clearly gave my home adress as the adress to sent it too. UPS is a f..... company. They are impossible to reach.
Meanwhile two drawer fronts painted.
I was looking for a felt strainer for my milling machine. All I could find were located in the US. Then I found a Dutch company selling for Hardinge in the US. Harding has it listed for $24 ex shipping. I received a quote from the Dutch company for €58 ex vat, ex shipping. We are talking about a piece of felt with metal bracket.
is there anyone that knows what type of felt is used for this?
It is a felt disc that is held in place by a metal ring that is screwed to the top of the quill in a Bridgeport J-head. It basically distributes the oil for the spindel bearings.
I just need to know what type of felt it is synthetic or wool. I can make it myself then.
If not I will order it through my brother in law in Colorado.
