Update on 15-21 rail issues

I haven’t checked in on the Vanderblog for a long time but wanted to say I had my rails milled at a reliable machine shop in Holyoke, MA, that works on a lot of old press equipment. I removed the bed and transported it to them, they milled the rails on both sides to my specs within a few days and I adjusted the bearings to accommodate the milling and now the press prints even all along the bed. This was a huge job taking the press apart but the option to rebuilding the rails. I learned a lot about the press while taking it apart and the machine shop charged me around $240.00. Happy to post pics if anyone is interested

I was under the impression that once the rails were done, the press was done as well. I’d love to see pictures.
