Servicing and Upgrading a Harbor Freight Mini Mill | …

Several years ago, I converted a Harbor Freight mini mill to a CNC using a CNCFusion kit and stepper controllers from HobbyCNC. It''s been sitting in storage for a few years now and is in need of a service and upgrade. Since it was originally a manual mill, it lacks many of the bells and whistles of proper VMC.
