Disassembling and Reassembling a Mill

If it hasn’t already been painfully obvious, I’m trying to learn mechanical stuff. Odd for a site that’s supposed to be about electronics, but I’ll get back to that on here eventually. Hopefully you’ll stick around until then. I’ve found that working with the mill has me looking at mechanical problems in a completely different light and has made me a better system designer overall.

As for these videos, I took the whole thing apart, mounted the base to my bench, put it back together, oiled it (not shown in video), leveled it and attached the stepper motors. I now have a functional machine!
