Thread: dull machine beds
As a newbie to machining I look with some envy at those machines with shiny beds and rails etc. I purchased an old Boxford lathe and a Tom Senior milling machine (now converted to cnc). Both machines were ex-schools machines and I donít think they have ever been cleaned. Dreadfully caked in suds n stuff.
The machines were cleaned with much gusto, but the beds are still dull. Can anyone offer the best way to clean / polish the beds and rails? Which can be achieved without third party machining.
Light oil and scotchbrite.
