Looking for a desktop lathe that can thread usning mach 3
« on: September 18, 2008, 07:53:17 AM »
Hello,

I have been googleing around looking for a CNC lathe that can cut threads small threads 12.2mm external to about 6.4mm internally.  However the only one I can find is a Wabeco for around £7000.

I was hoping to have a #2 morse taper, a tool turret would be nice however I am guessing that it would be too pricey.  The main thing would be single phase supply.  I would consider paying around £2000

I don't know if I am asking for too much for too little money.

Any help would be appreciated,  I have time as my workshop will be finished (laying a new floor  :)) around December time.  Will look to buy then.

Thanks,

Andy

Do a google for emco, not sure how much they are but they are nice wee lathes.

Oh BTW you will probably have top do some modifications to the emcos to run from Mach but quite a few have done it. There are also Chinese lathes on UK eBay that come ready for Mach so might be worth checking them out, I think a member here may have dealings with them, look up John S in the members list.
