    New to me Mill

    Well, as it turns out, I did have it unlocked. Just didn't have enough leverage with only one handle. I made another handle and it moves easy now. Thanks for looking.

    Lead screw lube maybe

    My CNC router ( has 5/8 acme lead screws with acetel anti backlash nuts. The X axis squawks on rapid moves, and sets up a vibration in the machine. My rapids are 60ipm. Haven't ever noticed any indication of lost steps it's just annoying. It's done that...
