Trying to figure out if I can keep OEM powerfeed.

If I lock the ballscrew to the table and turn the ballnut from the pedistal will the table move or cause excess wear ect?

Don't know what you are working on, but I have a Bridgeport CNC that has a fixed ball screw on the x axis, and the ball nut turns.

I'm a bit confused by your question. What machine are you working on? and what does the ball screw/nut drive?

Maybe some pictures would be helpful.
