German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase:automotive terms
can anyone give me the English for the following terms:
Lagergasse, Lagerseite, Halblagerschale.
These are parts of a 6-cylinder diesel engine to be roughed and finished on a Bohrkopfwechsler, ca. 40 kW. If anyone knows the name of that machine,too, I'd be grateful.
Thanks very much to everyone for your help. I wish I could split the points. And I am extremely sorry I forgot for so long to "grade" this!

Explanation: Given the context, I would think that the basic machine is either a boring machine or a milling machine. The 'Wechsler' part means that it has several boring tools that can be individually selected and used without having to remove one tool and install another one. Such a mechanism is called a 'turret'. Thus it's a turret boring machine or a turret milling machine.
