- I noticed that after some light use that my mill has developed quite
a bit of play. The headstock seems a little loose and the table has
developed some play too. Theres enough so that its noticable
(barely) from moving it back and forth by hand.
Is this typical for a new mill? Do they initially wear a little more
until the moving parts break in? It was very tigh when new and has
only been used 4-5 hours.
My Y axis has a little too much backlash too (was like this when
new) so i'd like to adjust that too. Anybody have a site with a part
diagram of the mill? Or some kind of service guide? I'm kind of
afraid to just take apart or pick at a relatively expensive item but
I guess I'll have to sometime.
Please post anything helpful. Thanks!
