BMC30 spindle rebuild

Thanks Everyone!

Too many other things have gotten in the way of getting this done. For the spindle main bearing nut it just needs to be tight, there is no torque value, no determined amount of force. Just needs to be tight enough where the assembly is restrained. I have been trying to set aside a day where I can start and finish this UN-interrupted.

I do have temperature and vibration probes I am going to have attached to the spindle during the startup to continuously monitor temperatures and vibration trends. This machine does have a spindle chiller on it also.
