Nearing Completion is a dual 5c spindle lathe. The main frame of the lathe was bought a cabin fever '09 from Ajax CNC in Pennsylvania. The rear spindle was created using a Allen Bradley servo motor and a 5C collect closer from grizzly tool you tube channel is cncadam

Nice!! Could you give some insight on how you setup Mach3 to control dual spindles like this? I will be building a lathe very similar to this and need to be able to control dual servo driven spindles (step/dir stream for both spindles).

Thanks!
