    Good glad to hear the 1144 will work well. When I first started pondering making a new cross feed screw I totally forgot that this one has a gear on it for the power feed. That adds some complexity...

    I will probably want new screws and nuts made at some point, atleast a cross-slide screw as it has more wear than the compound. Currently I've been using the machine almost on a daily basis, and it...

    The red stuff on the bearing was just some dye so I could confirm the casting didn't touch itself when the bearing cap was torqued down, And the blue stuff in the bearing...

    Yes I do understand that aspect of it. Thank you. I really don't have the capability to machine new bronze bearings, both machining and cost wise. This kind of seems like my only option.
