I've recently purchased an old 8" Parlgren rotab.with the X and Y crosslide table built into it.
It needs a good cleaning to be in near perfect condition and I would also like to stone the surfaces while I have it appart. I have the lower end (X&Ystage) apart and I can clean the gunk out of most of the inside. However, the inside end of the worm gear shaft feels "gummy" for a better word, and I don't seem to see how the top table part would come apart. I would realy like to get in there and clean it out rather the just soaking it in the parts washer and hoping I got everything. Anyone ever have one apart?
