    I was wrong, there is no servo gearbox. Just a timing belt..

    I believe it does say "Delta" on the front panel of the control pod.

    Here's hoping it's easily retrievable.

    That's quite interesting.

    The control itself is not what you see hanging on the swing arm. That's just the CRT and panel. There's a cabinet hanging on the side of the electrical cabinet that...

    I'm not against keeping the Dynapath. I just figured it would be cost prohibitive to do so. I didn't know they were PC based. I'll find out what version it is on my first day there to disassemble.

    That makes a lot of sense. In that case, I probably shouldnt detach the column from the base.

    As an update, it turns out that this unit IS a Planer-Mill originally. Turns out that the unit that the bridgeport J Head is attached to is actually a factory rockford Spindle assembly.
