    I acquired a 2-way Derbyshire Cross slide.

    It has some minor issues: A missing alignment shoe....

    And some excessive backlash

    What I'd like to know is how to disassemble the cross-slide to clean out the old grease that is in it and to then check the lead screw to lessen the backlash some.

    Any advice, suggestions or links to other info would be appreciated. If there is a book in the NAWCC library, a suggestion for that would be welcome.

    Thanks!

    Well, I think I figured out what I wanted to know.

    Moderators could move this thread to the Horological Tools sub-forum. Seems a more appropriate location. Maybe someone there will chime in with an opinion too.

    I think you have to prevent screw from walking by some type of washer/bearing/recess or restrictive device that prevents the scrw/,bolt from walking when you turn handle.
