      well I guess it isn't a blind hole any more! Blind hole bearing pullers are a worthwhile investment. Not something you'll use very often but super handy when you do.

        I could have sworn I had some but of course couldn't find them when I needed them. Luckily it is a sealed bearing and it is on the back side of the head. So it doesn't 'need' to be closed up. Not sure if I want to mess with welding a plug in or not.

        I am also looking at lubrication points since it is apart. There is nothing that really lubes the bull gear bearings once it is all together. Looks like they are just packed with grease and forgot about. Same goes.forntge worm gear for the power downfeed. My Lagun has an oil journal drilled threw this lower belt housing (bull gear housing?) To feed these bearings. Wondering if I should do the same for this mill.

              Bore the new hole round to a standard fractional size, and hit up Home Depot or similar for one of those little snap-in chrome hole covers. The next owner will think it's factory.

                    Funny! That was the exact thought that went threw my head when it happened. Haha

                      Just remember to remove the old bearing before repairing the hole.

                          Regarding the oiling tubes, had the same issue on my Frejoth. Also check all the connections where they press in. On mine a few were loose, and more oil went out of the connection than into the ways or screws.

Not a spec of rust on them. I also wiped down the top end of the knee ways which also looked great! I moved the knee all the way up and the table.all the way forward to help get the ram back in. Everything moved nicely. All the ways that were exposed look nice as well. I don't think I will be pulling the table off or the knee. Just move things from one end to the other and clean up what I can get to.

                            I do need to get a dial assembly for the y and x axis. I also see one of the copper lines for the oiler system was smashed flat so I will need to replace that. Besides those couple things and that lower belt housing part that should be on the way I think that is all I need for stray.

                            Well I guess one other thing. I need to run power to strays location and hook up yet another vfd. Lol
                            It wouldn't be a bad idea to fix the lube line before you put the table and saddle back on so you can see if the lube ports are plugged up or not.
