I am trying to move my SX2.7 milling machine and need to remove the column. I have removed the 4 bolts and it looks like it will separate when moving the column forward, but when trying to lift the column it won’t separate from base. Can someone who has done this before offer advice. Thanks.

The two dowel pins are put in at a slight angle so won't allow you to pull the two apart, remove pins first, they should be threaded for a make shift slide hammer.

I have not split a SX2.7 but pretty sure there is two location dowel pins as well as the 4 bolts, so probably tight on the pins. Is there a gap anywhere around the column/base connection where you can get a flat blade in as a lever..?

Thank you Jason & Ron. I was wondering if the pins would need removing but had seen a photo on the internet with the pins in the base.
