    Moving a 4x8 CNC machine?

    Hey guys,
    I have to move cross country for a new job and will be taking my 4x8 PRO CNCRP Machine with me. Unfortunately I no longer have any of the packaging or the linear bearing block inserts. Do any of you guys have any pointers for moving one of these machines? I’m thinking I have to leave the bearing blocks on the rails?

    I think I would one of:

    1) dismantle ENTIRELY and box up nicely, build plywood crates for the long rails, extrusions, etc.
    2) sell just the long rails and extrusions, and re-buy when you get there.
    3) Sell the machine and just get a new one at the destination. :-)
    4) Ask Avid for their source for some of the more odd sized packaging (cardboard tubes, etc)

    PS. Be sure to package and pad all parts VERY well.

    Never underestimate what 1000+ miles of highway jiggling can achieve through rub damage on things (especially all your custom built furniture).

    Don't ask me how I know this.
