axis problems

Recommended Posts

here is my problem. axis is off on one lens almost everytime. could it be worn blocks? I use the essilor plastic blocks. Or dull wheels? or a combo of both. For dull wheels is it more important to have better/sharper roughing wheels or finishing wheels? Thanks for any help. I edge with a essilor profile m

I moved your topic to the tech talk forum so a qualified service technician can view it. Dull wheels, bad blocks or even cheap leap pads will cause axis twisting. However, you say its only one lens. Is it consistantly the right or left? Or a certain matierial? These details will provide better clues to identify the problem

Thanks and welcome !!!

one will be of a little more than the other. 2 degrees right eye 5 left. i know i'm not that bad at dotting and blocking. i guess i just might start by getting leap pads but i think it has more do to with the wheels because of the age of the machine.

Dull wheels, bad blocks, cheap leap pads are all the first things to look for. It is also likely with the age of the machine that the left side bearings are bad. If all the easy things above dont help. It is time for a bearing job. If you replace the left side you may as well do the right side too. That is all it can be, especially if its an incosistant problem.

Bearing job was done approx 2-3 yrs ago. after that the machine was not used it sat around until i purchased it. can you do a bearing job yourself or does it have to be sent out. i am in the middle of nowhere va.

I honestly do not have time for a machine that old, I could only refer you to someone who can take that on a trade in for a newer machine.

Sorry

Private message me if you are interested in a trade upgrade.

Thanks
