Looking for someone with a Consew 206 to photograph the wicks

Recommended Posts

Hi -

I'm hoping that someone with a Consew 206 would be willing to photograph the wick in the top of their machine to help me with the installation of a new one.

My 206 RB-2 was acting a little odd and I realized that the wick at the top of the machine was in pretty bad shape. The machine runs great if I open up the top and oil it but the wick needs to be replaced.

I know where to buy the wick but I can't find a threading diagram anywhere so I don't know where to put the new wick when I install it.

I'd really appreciate any help that you can offer.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Greg - I appreciate your help. What this doesn't help me understand is how to situate the wick in relationship to the moving parts inside the machine.

Really hoping that someone stumbles across the post and can take a picture.

Hmm. I have old 206RB (no number) and I don't have anything like that. I just have some felts over shaft. I don't think my machine missing parts, but I'm curious if I can/should retrofit?

Was this done to aleviate some specific issue with design or it's just to cut on lubing points count?

Just to cutout lubrication points.  They call this centralized lubrication.  206RB does not have this, but some -1 have it, and all of the -2s have this.  The are many clear indicators of this system on the machine, the most obvious is an oil tank reservoir for automatic lubrication of the hook in the casting of the bed of the machine.
