  • PM Schedules

    I am looking for a PM schedule that you would hang up on a shop wall and is good for the entire year. I would prefer a cleaning and lubrication chart of some kind.

    Thanks

    Re: PM Schedules

    I use the weekly chart out of the Manual. It seems to work great for me. As for cleaning and Lubrication, I go over every machine every week, and if it's dirty I clean it, and if it's dry I lube it. This has worked for me for many years. I have never seen a chart like you are looking for, but maybe someone else has.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

        If you check your machines daily, how can any parts be dry? nice to see a mechanic on a good plan

          I check every machine weekly, I don't lube everything weekly. It seems like twice a year I do a complete lube of the machine. Some times more. For example if the rod ends on the table adjusting rods get a little dry, you get squeeling as the table moves. That is really the only part of the machine that gets lubed more than twice a year.

            I hope you grease Dist stop blades more than twice a year. Or do you have the new-fangled jobs.

              They get greased once a month when I take the clutches apart and clean them and lube the pinion gear. Some people have told me that I don't have to do it as often as I do, but it is very rare that you will see a pinjam in my house due to a clutch problem. I usually only have two or three pinjams a week and this is in a very busy 18 lane house.

                  The same reason you lube the stop blades, better operation and less wear, is the same reason you grease rod ends on the table.

                  Extend the strong belief you have on lubing the stop blades into other areas of the machine, and, in general, your life and machines will run smoother.

                  Just a friendly reminder.

                    You might want to hit the spot/respot cam followers more then twice a year. I believe i hit them about 4 times.

                      A yearly chart kind of depends on how you want to handle you're yearly stuff. Do you want to assign yearly's in the summer, or break it up into so many machines a month? Semi-anuals. Do you want to knock them off in the summer and holiday times, or assign a certain # of machines a month?

                      I think you need to tailor the mainenance to you're center. For example. If I followed the recomended 160 drops of oil on the sweep joints per machine every month I would be cleaning up oil off the gutters every week. And I did at the beginning. So I increased it to every 10 weeks. And so far so good.

                      Sometimes I think AMF came up with there lubrication scale to cover all the bases, IE. enough lube for a sea coast center with all the moisture in the air. But too much for other parts of the country. I don't know.

                        What we did was got a 4x6 whiteboard, marked off permanent squares on it with a magic marker and a ruler (One column per machine), then marked each lube or maintenance operation on it. As we do each machine, we mark it off on the board with a dry-wipe marker. At the end of each operation, we clear off the board, mark in the new dates, and start over. I have a couple boards like this... one for oiling/greasing and cleaning, another for regular adjustments & maintenance, and even one for our pinchaser scheduling. It keeps everyone on the ball, since it's posted to be seen... you can customize it to however you want it, AND it looks real nice for the boss so he can see that the work is being done (and can justify writing out those 'big checks'. not...
