I haven’t seen much discussion about this, so I thought I would ask the community if anyone has come up with a good solution for this.
As I get more and more cut hours on my Gen 1 Crossfire, the axis tubes constantly get a buildup of slag and coolant stuck on them which eventually gets stuck on the bearings. I do my best to keep the tubes and bearings wiped clean, but it seems like a problem that could solve itself with some bellows or some wipers for the tubes.
Has anyone identified an affordable bellows solution that could fit these machines? I had thought about trying some high temp brake ducting hose (link below for example) because I’ve got piles of it laying around, but that just seems a little unpolished.
Looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts!
