Hi: I have a TMC 1000 CNC mill. One of the orizionals. There appears to be some slippage at times on the Y- axis. I may need to replace the lead screws, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions re: how to do this? where to get the parts, etc. Thank you!

I'm curious as to why you think the lead screw is slipping? Usually, unless you either did not lube it, or just plain wore it out, they work fine and last a long time. I would start at the connections to the lead screw, pulleys, motor clamps, whatever, and see if one of them is loose, first.
