For Sale: Late-type Beichle Combined Universal, Die Milling and Boring Machine. It is with great regret, due to downsizing, that I offer this outstanding German machine It is believed to be a toolroom-class Model WF2 - without doubt the finest built and most versatile milling machine I have ever had it is ideal for the discerning amateur or professional engineer. The T-slotted table 15" x 23" and mounted in the vertical plane while the milling head is set horizontally. The table, mounted on a very substantial shaft that passes through the main body on the left, is fitted with a large 90-tooth worm wheel at the opposite end that engages with a worm on the spindle of a permanently-fitted dividing head. With the adjustable worm in mesh compound dividing is possible using a dividing plates (3 are provided), sector arms and indent. Most divisions from 1 - 120 can be achieved (a table of divisions is supplied) and, by disengaging the worm, which is carried in the usual eccentric sleeve, simple direct dividing to give 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 can be used by means of an indent engaging with a 24- toothed wheel inside the casing. If ultra-fine dividing is needed, a special plate is fitted divided into 4 segments, each representing one degree with further subdivisions into 30 increments, each giving 2 minutes of arc - a total of 10,800 divisions. When disengaged from the dividing apparatus the table can be used as a rotary type, a large handwheel at the front of the machine being used as the table and its shafting are too heavy to be rotated by the dividing head arm (although for simple direct dividing it could be pulled round by hand - screwing in the detent then brings the table into correct position). Angular rotation of the table can be fixed at any position using the 1-degree graduated scale where the dovetailed piece carrying the slide (to which the table is fitted), fits onto the shaft in the main body. If more accurate settings are needed than can be obtained by eye the special angular dividing plate can be used. In addition to that rotary feature, the table can also be rotated on the slide and together they allow compound curves to be generated. Accurately re-zeroing of the table on its slide after rotation is achieved by a taper peg and re-zeroing the slide after rotation by setting the direct dividing to '24' on the division gear.
The slide carrying the table is fitted with a feedscrew and an adjustable inch-graduation micrometer collar which, when the table is set at zero degrees, is the vertical position. This zero position is also achieved using a locating taper peg as well as the linear scale as an initial guide. The facility of being able to rotate the table means that faces or slots at angles to each in the same plane can be milled if the change in direction is so that the centre of rotation of the table is also at the centre point of the end-mill. The zero position of the milling head, coinciding with the centre point of the table, is also accurately set using a taper peg. The milling head is fitted to what is, in effect, the top slide of a compound slide assembly, this being mounted on the rise and fall knee - all fitted with imperial micrometer dials. The head can be rotated on the topslide so that the spindle is either vertical or parallel to the table and correctly set in position by a dowel and clamped by bolts. The topslide itself can be rotated on the cross-slide - useful for drilling angular holes for instance - and the cross-slide can also be rotated on the knee so that the topslide and milling head move at an angle to the face of the table for milling faces at an angle to the face of the table. All linear travels are fitted with a linear scale as well as micrometer dials and have adjustable stops. The table's self-centring vice is located centrally by a spigot at the rear fitting into a hole with a locating dowel to ensure the jaws are parallel with the T-slots. In place of the table, a 3-jaw self-centring chuck can be fitted. The No. 4 Morse taper milling head has a top-mounted motor with drive by V-belts over a belt tensioning/relieving lever for easy changes and a spindle lock for changing tooling. Included is a variety of 4MT tooling, a Low-Vo light and a suds pump. I have fitted a simple gantry to help lifting the vice/chuck into place and that fits in the vertical coolant pipe but easily reconfigured if needed. I also fitted some RSJ's on the bottom which it sits on and which have cut-outs to allow pallet truck forks to fit - saves having to lift it or jack it up to get the forks underneath. All the motions work smoothly and there seems little wear in the slideways, many of which still have original scraper marks. 3-phase electrics but included is a "like-new" Transwave 2.2 kW converter. On the main body near the dividing head is a 'computer' that allows calculation of cutting speeds using cutter diameter and r.p.m. Apart from a few cosmetic blemishes the machine is in excellent overall condition. £3750 email: email@example.com Pictures of the Beichle miller for sale here and Details of Beichle machines here
