Monday is a day late this week. Yesterday was smooth as silk. Today, not so much. The manual OD grinder that had an oil leak last week ate the grinder head motor this week. Total pain to get out. Being a universal grinder, it is buried in the main column and all the wheel heads have to come off to get it out. Never seen one go before. They generally last forever. Still have to find the oil leak, but we can look for that while the motor is out getting reworked. Last of the dinosaurs. It's a manual Kellenberger universal grinder. The service guy was out to help me with one of the CNC's a few weeks ago and said they are discontinuing making the manual version as they are not selling. It's a shame as they are a far superior machine to most of the other manual universals on the market. Hopefully tomorrow is a smoother day.
Only a few weeks until vacation. Need to head up north for a wedding towards the end of vacation. Cousins youngest daughter getting married. Time flies. Doesn't seem like the kids should be that old already. Get to catch up with my brother and my son for a bit while in the neighborhood. Hopefully get to stop off and harass Og while in the area. Just need to survive a few more weeks.
