Looking for Mill / Lathe Conversion Ideas
« on: September 16, 2018, 08:47:15 PM »
I have a CNC mill with a cutting table size of 36”x28”x6”which is working fine and recently I built a combo lathe / mill (manual operation) which also works fine and are shown in the attached pictures.

I want to incorporate the lathe part into the CNC mill table and I am looking for suggestions. I will disconnect the CNC part from the mill table and convert it to manual, like the lathe, and later perhaps I will convert both to CNC. The mill and lathe will never work together at the same time as there is no need to do so. 

The CNC mill now runs on Mach3 and this project is for hobby use
