Had my Sharp HMV delivered yesterday, now about a half of my garage is occupied by a large oily smelly 3000lb hunk of metal.
It's had a harder life than I thought when I bought it at auction. the servo power feed doesn't work, the DRO is dodgy (hopefully the X scale just needs cleaning) and the quill manual downfeed handwheel is missing, the quill lock lever has been repaired by a cheesy weld repair. I haven't even gotten to the power up stage yet as I have to wire it to my phase converter. There are a few more dimples in the table than I remember too. Question: Are replacement handwheels and other such bits and bobs reasonably priced from Sharp or should I just plan on making my own?
