    Older PCNC1100 - do I need to tear it down to clean it?

    2009 Series 2. Bought more for what was with it than the mill itself. The table has chips packed in the slots and when I jogged it didn't hear anything bad. Has the automatic oiler with digital display (and had oil in it).

    If this were a Bridgeport I'd already have it apart to clean out the oil channels, but with the power draw bar and the ATC seems like this will end up taking a lot more work, but it's the dirtiest mill I've ever owned.

    The answer is probably yes, but I'm not motivated.

    Thanks,
    Rich
