    I will haul it over split in half. So gantry crane will lift it no problem. I just got a price to move it for $400 to just pick it up a drive it to new shop next door with fork lift.

    Little update on the KMB1 build.
    During a strange turn of events I no longer own the Hurco mill. Wife and I decided to build a new home and during the sale the new owner decided to purchase the Hurco from me. I was hesitant to sale it since it was ready for electronics,but did make it easier on me not needing to move it.

    So consider this project closed

    I ended up buying this mill from the new owner at the end of January. It was the exact type of project I was looking for. We picked it up and moved it a few days ago. That thing is heavy. The loader we brought wouldn't pick it up so we had to run down to the rental place a few miles away and rent an small boom lift. Its sitting on a trailer in my parents barn for now until I can line up a way to pick it up off the trailer and set it in my shop.


    I plan on continuing the retrofit using an Centroid Acorn board. They have a lot of neat features including that 4th axis control.

    Were there any spare parts that you left, or was it just the mill and the operator panel/station? More or less I'm looking for the way lube system and the power electronics. I would rather reuse some of the old fuse holders and power supply components instead of designing my own circuit boards from scratch.

    Thanks for your time.
