  • Where to find a B&S 7107 Owners Manual?

    The question came up about how often to clean the scales on this machine(B&S 7107).
    I have Hex out yearly for Cal. and PM, but have never had to clean the scales myself.
    Does B&S or Hex have a document spelling out specific user maintenance requirements.
    I was under the impression that it is best not to touch the scales unless you get an error message.

    I would agree with that, "DEPENDING"....

    If your lab is 'clean', leave 'em alone
    If you lab is 'dirty', clean 'em once every couple months

    If in a dirty lab, you get a piece of grit or a build-up of grit and it could end up making a scratch on the scales.

      I can’t remember the last time I actually saw an “Owner’s manual” for a specific CMM. Maybe the Cordax 1810 back in the 80’s ?

      Zippo lighter fluid and lint free cloth works great.

        My lab isn't "Clean Room" clean, but close. Seperate with independent HVAC. If I wasn't a coffee drinker, I wouldn't allow anything but water in the lab.

          a light solvent and lint free cloth... like lighter fluid and a tec-wipe sorta thing. Cheese cloth works good too. Lighter fluid works well because it dries without a residue. Ive use IPA and Denatured too but I prefer the lighter fluid.

            I found a Users Manual for our Xcel 7.6.5 (built in '92 ) on e-Bay and bought it. It does have a very nice section on user maintenance.

              Use denatured alcohol and blue shop towels myself for cleaning the scales and surfaces the air barings ride on.

                I was always told that Zippo brand lighter fluid leaves no residue.

                  Agreed. I would use cosmetic cotton balls.

                      Here is a link for the cleaning of the scales on a BNS 9-15-9 from 1999.

                        This really depends on the scales.

                        If you have Renishaw scales, you will be paying to replace them if you use anything stronger than 70% isopropyl (denatured is ok). Lighter Fluid, acetone, or anything that is a solvent will destroy the clear laminate on the scales.


                        In all cases:
                        The wiping material should always be 100% cotton, anything else runs the risk of scratching. Many wiping products are wood fiber based and will scratch.

                          I didn't know that, but then, I've never used a machine that uses Renishaw scales unless Sheffield is using them on my new Pioneer.

                          Do you know ?

                            That goes for Mitutoyo machines too. The glass dont like solvents.
