Oil pan for the composition caster
« on: March 09, 2017, 10:23:09 AM »
I'm in need of an oil pan for the composition caster (plate 12, part a114E1). Any spares?

What happened with the old part ? As far as I know you have two machines complete, one of them is for large composition.
The third comp-caster is not quite complete but this machine is not in use...

Actually this very piece the oil-pan could easily be made by a plumber. Take the measurements from one of of the machines.

this piece is to contain some oil, dipping the cams in it with every turn of the machine.

I have no idea, but none of the large composition machines has it (only a small comp caster does), but maybe it's hiding somewhere in our parts storage? I haven't come across it yet.

I don't know why the machine has its bottom gear cover (plate 36, part 217E1) taken off and lying around. I'll put it back.
