Boxford CNC lathe repair
I was having some difficulty seeing the work in progress in my Boxford 124TCL CNC lathe. It reminded me of the situation before I had a cataract operation, but the cure in this case was rather easier.
The perspex cover was suffering from swarf blasting and had become opaque. A lathe cataract you might say.
Rather than replacing the entire cover, I took the cheap option of cutting out most of the affected panel with a jig saw and screwing in a new piece.
It does not look quite as streamlined, but I can see the job in progress now. And it will be easy to do a cataract extraction in future.
