I've finally assembled and adjusted the Beseler 23c II XL (very nice machine by the way) and am now on to attaching the lift to the CPP-2. I've done a little processing with the CPP minus the lift, and can totally see why I need it now.

I believe the lift I have is the old style (not like the one in the manual on the jobo site) Do I need a special type of screws to hold it to the motor base (I believe plastic ones are mentioned somewhere online) or can I just use standard stainless ones? Is there anythign special about them? Can someone post a photo of what it is supposed to look like?

Thanks,
Brian

Brian,

I can post some photos when I get home from work tonight. Should be home by a little after 7:00pm CST.

Brian,

I don't think there is any thing "special" about the screws.

They are 1 1/4" long and made of nylon plastic, but I'm not sure what the thread size is.

I know that you can buy them @ Home Depot or Lows, although the ones they sell are white, not black.

I guess you could use standard stainless ones, but I think (not sure) that the nut they screw into is plastic also so you want to make sure you don't over tighten and strip the threads or break something.

Hope this helps and let me know if you need more information.

Jim

Wow Jim, your jobo is shiny and clean. Does it get used?

Brian, do you have a manual for your jobo? I have one. It's nice and spiral bound. I have an ATL so the CPP manual isn't needed any more.

Heheh.. It gets used a couple of times a week. I try to wipe it down after each use.

Brian,
The screws are M6 thread, Jobo being a German product. Jobo supplies the plastic screws with red fiber washers which go under the screw head and rubber o-rings which are meant to sit in the countersink in the housing and seal the holes. I found that the o-rings could easily slip through the countersink though, and think something like a thin, soft rubber washer or some silicon would do the job better. My feeling is that Jobo supplies plastic screws to stop people from over tightening the screws and wrecking the fastening holes on the poorly designed plastic arms!

Not quite sure what the problem is ... I have used both the "old" lifts (white plasitic,vertical tank "clips") and "new" lifts (stainless steel wire horizontal tank "clips"); and both are covered rather thoroughly in their web site information.

There are two Rotator Motor shaft configurations ... a straight shaft with a slotted screw (old) and a tapered shaft with internal hex head screw (new). The drive cog is also different and must match.

I would suggest that you contact JOBO Customer Service ... they are good to talk and write to .... and they can supply any parts you need.
