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, Beth

Bohrkopfwechsler = turret boring machine or ,,,


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.
