Y axis lube rebuild for Milly

Just finished bending and fitting all new copper grease lines for the Y axis in the machining center. Bit of a pain as it's fairly close quarters in this part of the machine, but I'm happy with how they came out!

The original grease lines all ruptured due to corrosion at the point where the aluminum hold down block can be seen. Now I just have to wait for a new header block and this axis will be back in commission!

Note the poor state of the paint in here, it's all been attacked by the synthetic coolant that was used on the machine.
Not long now before the whole machine is up and running!
