Ok this is not really a joke, but most of us have funny idea when come to problem solving esp. concerning machine tools.
So my emergency solution to my wobble TS handwheel is to replace it just with anything that might work. I saw my dead industrial fan lying on the floor, and got this idea – used the blade/propeller spook as the handwheel…LOL
First I dismantled the fan’s blades leaving the three spooks, then drilled 3/8”D bore in the hub. Next I drilled 2/8”D hole at the end of one of the spooks and bolted the revolving handle from my original handweel. Since this fan blades’ hub has biger setscrew, it was easier to tigbten it as compared to my original handwheel. Now can I tilt my TS blade much smoother than before.
