No. I decided to silicone around the bed feet. Easier to cut and disassemble down the road if we move

Me and 3 neighbors were able to just carry it around and into the basement. Before we did it got a WD40 wipedown, removed all the cosmoline, and then wiped down with IPA to remove residue.

A few more pics.

got the forward-off-reverse bar, powerfeed bar, and the lead screw reinstalled. Did a little file work in the key ways, and modified the clutch a tad. The original grub screw galled up the key way making removal difficult, so a drill and file helped me solve for that.

Noticed an issue with the compound gib. It seems when I attempt to adjust the gib with the screw closest to the tool post, the clockwise motion of the adjusting screw lifts the gib inside the slot, and causes binding. The lift is over a mm of travel. The vertical movement of the gib is all throughout the length of the cross slide.

Should the gib be pulled upward, away from the way, or should it be pushed down towards the way? Their only seems to be one scraped surface which holds the compound down to the ways on the dovetail, but the gib itself moves quite a bit up and down if both adjusting screws are loose.

An additional annoyance is when I adjust the gib so I have no or little side to side movement, the adjusting screw at the hand wheel is backed out as far as it will go, so as wear begins to happen, I will need to trim the gib at the narrow end so the adjusting screws can still work properly.

Not sure if this makes any sense, or if this will help but...

Here is the gib adjuster at the back side of the compound...It sticks out quite a bit.

And here is the other, almost touching the hand wheel assembly, I.E. no room to tighten beyond here...
