I am looking for anyone in the Seattle area converting a vertical mill to cnc. I am in the process of bringing mine home piece by piece (trying to lighten the load so I can lift it onto and carry it on my drift boat trailor, I only have to go about 8 mi.). It was a 2 axis cnc machine with the servos? still attached but has no controler. I am interested in meeting with people in the Seattle area who are or have converted their machine to cnc using a PC as the controler.
As a side note; while taking the table off the knee (cradle?) last night we had to remove the X axis screw from the ball screw (I didn't see any other way to get the table off). Now a'm not sure how to reinstall the screw into the ball screw. The ball screw now has a bunch of little ball bearings sitting in the bottom of it. I'm sure (hope) there is a easy way to reinstall the screw. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jack. Any body in the Seattle area may Email me or call...425-442-6126.
