Halleluiah, I finally got a power feed on the X axis of my UM. I looked and
looked but could not find a factory power feed. I gave up and spent $200 on
a Chinese Servo knock-off. Adapting it to the Hardinge was a matter of
making a shaft extension, adding two needle thrust bearings to the unit and
hacking of the excess material on the table end casting that came with the
power feed. Oh joy, oh joy, no more cranking! A DRO is next.
