    Final update: got around to making that gib adjustment bolt and got the machine back together. I was able to take a lot of slack out of the table now that I can actually adjust the gib and also got...

    That's a good thought! I happen to have some leaded stock laying around somewhere...hmmmm

    I had some time tonight so I played with it some more. After getting the cross feed nut back in place and loctiting a new set screw in, I decided to see if I could get the table moving to the right...

    No update yet, I had to handle a few other projects first. I did get the cross feed nut back into place with a new set screw. Gonna tackle getting the table off again at some point in the next few...
  5. Nope, just one gib screw on the left side of the...

    Nope, just one gib screw on the left side of the table. I agree that it shouldn't be this hard but I think it all comes down to this stuck/bent gib screw. To be clear, I an open to any other ideas,...

    Yeah that's the other thing, there was a fair amount of table vibration when making cuts, along with a poor surface finish. It wasn't terrible but it sort of make sense now, knowing that the gib...

    All right, here's tonight's update. I've spent the last two days trying to get the table off with no luck. I could at least see that the feed nut had in fact backed out totally, which was good to see...

    Excellent thoughts, thank you. I had pretty much decided to do something similar with a chainfall, and then pull it off with a come-along. I'll update next week.

    Okay, spent a few hours taking it apart tonight. I guarantee that none of these bolts and screws have been removed in 83 years, it was a complete nightmare.

    However, I have the lead screw free...

    I agree with you, I guess I didn't consider that the nut could be round and held in by other means. I googled some pics of Cincinnati cross feed nuts and they mostly seemed to be rectangular-ish...
  12. 1938 Cincinnati 2MH - handles don't move the table anymore

    Hello friends,

    I've been using my new-to-me-but-very-old Cincinnati 2MH for a few weeks now. However, tonight, immediately after taking a full-length pass on the X axis, the table suddenly would...
