    Default TM2p spindle nose from table distance

    Good afternoon. I've been searching the threads but have not found an answer. I just purchased a used Tm2p. Had a machine inspection done it's good to go. But they did not ship the machine with the Z at its lowest point. It needs to fit through a standard 84inch tall garage door. I understand I need to remove regen coil and junction box to get it to fit. BUT

    I need to lower the Z axis by hand, but dont want to go to far and have it fall off the ball screw. Does anybody have an idea of what the distance is from spindle nose, to table with the Z axis at the lowest point ? Thank you for your time.

    I measure 3.75" from the spindle face to the table with Z at its lowest point.

    Thanks a bunch! Do you know if the z axis ball screw can be rotated by hand with machine unplugged? Or do I need to remove the z motor?

    You've exceeded my level of intelligence.
