Re: The Mill is damn near done! Or is that "done for"...?

I guess we now know what else got damaged from that crash other than the pivot gears. It sounds like someone either rammed the spindle while positioning it with the power feed, or set the feed and wasn't watching it when it crashed - it would take a lot of force to bend the spindle, shatter the pivot worm and strip the table nuts.
you sure you can't machine and grind up a new one? :P
Have you looked at that power feed yet? if there is this much damage up here, what would the gearbox look like?
