RF-45 conversion
« on: October 07, 2008, 05:38:48 AM »
Guys,
  has anybody out there converted a RF-45 to cnc?
I am considering one of these as they seem to be the perfect size
for a garage,plus they have a massive dovetail coloum.
I have done a number of mach/servo conversions and upgrades so really
I am looking for the suitability and Ideas about the machine itself,
particualy in the area where the head ataches to the coloum,as this looks a little
on the small size(length of dovetail)for the overhang of the head.
I am thinking of purchasing the ISO 30 version,incase I decide to build a toolchanger,
 with the 3phase motor to run off a 240volt VFD inverter,I'm in the UK.
Cheers
   Tony

Tony,

    You should spend some time on the Industrial Hobbies website.  The RF45 makes a very nice CNC machine.

Ray,
  it seems mostly not working or under construction.
Thanks for the reply all the same.
