    Could do... Would you come to my place?
    Which bit do you want? I have the original stepper drivers, transformer + big caps, various relays , control panel...
    I kept the spindle driver as it works fine with Mach3.
    What do you think it is worth ?

    Hi Laurent, the drives, rack, psu +caps and b/recs are all i need, the rest is boxfords own, so too old to be used. I can come to yours either before or after the show. No idea on value, these are more for for spares for old machines.

    I2I,
    I had a quick look at that ballscrew page, But they seems to have the type of nut I am looking for only in the rolled type of screw...

    Hi there, did you manage to source some new screws for your 260 or did make do with the old, i only ask as my Z spat its balls out and im using a old lead screw as a temporary measure, but will replace all with new machined screws if i can find a reasonable priced source...

    you could machine out the ballnut mounting plate to take a standard flanged nut, and put up with the slight loss of axis movement.

    Hi i2i, if i cannot get some of those threaded ball nuts thats what i will do its not like you would lose much using a conventional nut ...
