I am moving my 48-96 pro machine to my new home, 600-miles from the original location. I broke it down into three sections, the gantry, the table, and the legs. It will be fairly easy to re-assemble the machine, but after reading some of the posts on here about alignment and replacing worn parts, can anyone lend advice as to maintenance on the machine as I re-assemble it? I have noticed that the X-axis makes a noise in a particular spot where it sees the most usage. Maybe the gear in the rack and pinion but it does not make the noise on the far left or far right as it is jogged, just in the center section.
I will align everything when I rebuild it, but is there anything that I should be doing during this process? I’ve read posts (cannot remember where) about cutting a more perfect circle etc. Maybe that’s a Mach 4 issue, but while I am doing all of this realignment work, I’d sure like advice as to getting the machine more perfect than a complete newbie when the machine was assembled out of the boxes.
I appreciate you opinions and advice.
