Does any one know what the case screw size (5 of em), is on the Expobar
Office Leva please? The head is a Phillips #2 & the thread pitch I measured
@ 0.8mm. That would seem to be a 5mm thread body, but I don't know..
TIA!
Regards,
Craig.

Yes, of course I'm going to do that. I just wanted to confirm with SOMEONE
here! There's more than ONE person here with the machine & only wanted to
get a quick response back.. Guess I'm just asking for too much!

Maybe you expect too much? There are probably few Expobar owners
reading this, and even fewer who would be inclined to remove a screw
from their machine, and even fewer who who have the ability to
accurately measure the screw?

I'm lucky that I have real olde worlde engineering workshop near the
coffee bar and have taken anything from an unusual pop rivet to the
complete trailer tow hitch for repair. Even took the Coke fridge
glass door round when the hinge snapped in the door frame. They
quickly repaired it (a necessity since it was high summer at the time,
with nothing but a blanket to keep the drinks cold) :)

Excellent Danny! {:-D There are more than a few shops here like that too.
I've worked in 3 machine shops over the years starting with my first job out
of High school Gr12 1973 & 18yrs old then., 52 now.., all 3 old school
shops.
I'll be off to the metric auto fasteners section of a good place I know.
Craig.

If you can't get no satisfaction here or on CG why don't you contact one
of the Expobar dealers? But really, it's probably a pretty standard
size so a well stoked hardware store might have what you need.

I get the impression that you prefer the forums to good old AC these days?

Oddly enough, I have (litle used) qualifications in engineering -
Capstan lathe setting, as well as horizontal & vertical milling, and
would love a nice little Herbert 2D in my garage :)

What I worked on too Danny! Herbert 2D engine lathes, turret lathes, radial
drills, milling machine, New Britain screw machine, Mazak NC turning center.
Man, I'd love one too! The machine shop superintendant, above the
supervisor/manager was an old English curmudgeon & a real taskmaster too
{;-)
Cheers!
Craig.
