Re: Cannibalistic Morso

Thanks for that advice about the draw bar holders not being an engineered weak point. I obviously got confused by the adverts that go along with the sale of new draw bar holders; :Slap: "Connects the bottom of the main springs to the Morso pedal mechanism. Must be checked on a regular basis as this ...

Re: Frame clamps

I have an old set of Ulmia's along with the 'spreader pliers'.

They don't get much usage, but as previously stated easy to use but they do leave marks on the moulding, that requires filling.

New sets seem well expensive, over £100!

Re: Cannibalistic Morso

I agree with you that the horizontal shaft rotating, is the cause of the wear on the case, but surely the easiest way to find out if there are other problems in the "pedal tipper frame" is to first stop the horizontal bar from rotating? This job will have to be done anyway if the Morso is going to b...

Re: Cannibalistic Morso

As an after thought Simon, :idea: make sure you inspect the "Draw bolt holders" that are connected to the springs. :D The effect of the horizontal bar moving around in the larger diameter hole when the machine is operated, puts a higher force on the whole system. Draw bolt holders are liable to be a...

Re: Cannibalistic Morso

Hi Louise, as you know by now the morso is a great quality machine. The main weakness seems to be the problem you have got! :( :head: I too had the same problem and posted previously what I did to remedy it and will quote it here as it may be of use to your neighbour; "Just to give a heads up on the...

Re: Wanted

Hi, I bought an underpinner from a guy in Rotherham last August. I also purchased some cut down lengths of moulding from him. He had quite a few full lengths of good quality moulding that I couldn't fit in my vehicle, at a guess around 100 Metres in full. It's possible he still has these as he kept ...

Re: How to teach new staff how to use Morso

Hi Morso, :) How about a strengthening piece fitted where the horizontal bar of the lever system connects to the sides of the machine that is at present, only connected to 1.5mm pressed steel? :( Thinking something like a 50mm long x 100mm wide steel plate (so it goes around the radius at the back o...

I phoned Lion concerning there omission from the website of their blade sharpening services highlighted in red on any of their 'Morso Mitre Guillotine' section of the 'F' variety, and had rather a drawn out conversation with a lady. :( She 'guessed' that it had been omitted because there is no order...

Re: Second hand point gun

Well used Fletcher point guns go for about £30 each, two separate guns for flexis and rigids.

I know they have history behind them, (I have the two!) but if I was buying now I think the Framers Corner single gun would make better economic sense, as long as it stood the test of time.

Lion Birmingham now have no 'blade sharpening' access on their website.

Re: Glass cloth / wipes

I have thirsty pockets :wink: from 'Home bargains' with 'Nilglass' sprayed on.

I then mop up the liquid residue with a dry piece of the kitchen roll.

Finally, a wipe over with a Microfibre cleaning cloth.
