Questions Setup Mill to Turn as lathe
« on: May 20, 2010, 05:32:59 PM »
How can i get my mill to turn as if it were a lathe. I see people doing it  but can't seem to get it to work properly? How are the motors setup and in which direction is the axis moving? if anybody knows how to accomplish this could you please let me know??

Have a look at this thread as Simpson has done a lot of work on using a rotary on the mill,
