Sorry for taking a while to get back to you,
You ask:
"How difficult was that to do?
I've been toying with the idea of building a machine, but the parts would be lower spec than an industrial machine and would cost far more than an old machine."

Not hard to do replacing linear rails and carriages is only a matter of exchanging like for like, the ball screws were 12 x 3mm to small a pitch so I replaced with 16 x 5mm and new steppers for each axis and a new controller.
Once you know all the dims you can find packages in China and some will cut screws to length all at a reasonable price.
