Preparing your milling machine for Shipment
Pack your milling machine in its complete original packaging, including the three carriage locks. If you received the original packaging and/or carriage locks in a damaged condition, please indicate this when you submit your return or exchange authorization request, so that alternate instructions may be provided. When inserting your rail covers, face the milling machine towards you and make sure that the bed is all the way front, the x-axis carriage is pushed all the way to the right side, and the spindle head is completely down. You may have to hand turn the lead screw of the spindle head to get it to move the spindle head all the way down. The correct packaging will make sure that the bed, carriage, and spindle don’t move during shipping. Any movement could damage the milling machine and invalidate your return.
If you are returning an milling machine, please follow the shipping guidelines in our How to Ship a Milling Machine Guide.
