A career advancement opportunity is taking me away from my shop for an extended period of time.
Subsequently my X carve will be idle for roughly 6 months.
I know what I need to do with my other power tools/ Wood working equipment. But are there any suggestions for leaving an X Carve idle for long periods of time? I’ll not be covering any of the equipment because tarps/covers will only trap the humidity… work surfaces of my larger power tools will be waxed and moving parts will be sprayed down with lubricant/protectant where applicable, but i am not sure what I should do to the X Carve. Should I take the tension off the belts? Should I remover the Dewalt so that the weight is not satic on the rail?
I will be relocating the machine and disconnecting it from all forms of power… I have even considered disconnecting all electrical connections at the X-Controller.
any suggestions are appreciated.
thanks in advance
