I have this mill and I want to replace the lead screw nut on the X axis. I have about 120 thou backlash. There are cap screws on the nut to take up some of the slack, but I'm about out of adjustment range.
Does anyone know of a parts source for this machine? Thank you.

I googled Kao-Fong and found this site

I also use Leads Screw International who repair and manufacture new ball screws.

I think I have one of these machines. Let me double check tomorrow. And find my notes. I have the manual. I have been able to get parts in the US. Sharp machine tools was the supplier. It was lead screw nuts. They did not fit that well. Let me try to find a few pictures to post.

Only picture I could find tonight. Mine has a riser. I have some detailed leads crew and nut pictures around.
