My CNC mill is gettin' tired. It's got 11 thou backlash in X which is a ton on a CNC machine. I've only lived with it for 15 years. Now, I need parts it just isn't going to make.
Anyway, I bought an identical mill for parts a while back. I spent yesterday tearing it down. The table on this mill may be just slightly better. X Ball screw didn't look at all good though. I'll spend today taking the Y axis apart. Knee in a couple days. Then I'll do the same on the shop mill and pick out the best parts.
Anyway, does somebody know a vendor to send the table and saddle out for regrind? Same question to refurbish the ball screws? Preferably kind of near the Twin Cities. I'm hoping this isn't a break the bank cost job.
