I hate to double post, but I'm kinda in an urgent situation.
I put a post here explaining: Disassembly of Lagun CNC 250 for storage - how?
Basically I need to know the easiest/safest way to take apart a Lagun 250 CNC mill to make it shorter so I can put it into my garage and out of the weather. Right now it's under a tarp, which makes me nervous about rain.
If you can help, thanks in advance.
Well, I'll reply to my own posting since no one here seemed to have the info.
I removed four large bolts on the ram and detached the head. I was careful to use some wood scraps to avoid scraping and dings. The round contact surface on the ram was scraped flat (it looked quite nice) and there was a shim that unfortunately fell out while I was doing this.
I have to figure out where the shim was placed, and I expect I'll have to go to some lengths to calibrate and square the machine when I reassemble it.
But for now, it's in my garage. I lowered the head to the table and put it on 2x4 supports that are cantilevered out from it using a couple tee nuts. This lets the quill hang over the edge, lowering the head more and not supporting any weight.
I used steel pipe rollers to get it into the garage.
Now I just need to finish my shop space and clear it out, then I can start my setup.
