CNC Lathe conversion -12
Today I fitted the lead screw.
No big deal, I sense that you are thinking. After all, the ends are machined, the bearings fitted, and all waits in readiness.
True, but there is a strict sequence of events. And since it has been 3 or more weeks since it has been together, I had to rediscover the sequence, by trial and error. And each bit of the fitting is very heavy, very delicate, very tricky. So it took me several hours to get to the final photo in this blog.
But first a view of the inside of the newly machined apron.
