Billy’s first (and hopefully simple) CNC Lathe Conversion
Thanks in advance for any comments/replies to this post. Am preparing to purchase a new Grizzly G0602 lathe (Live in Bellingham whereGrizzly’s headquarters are located). Will be machining aluminum for trumpet shaped molds and plastic bushings/housings for electrostatic and RC projects. The basic components planned for the conversion are:
1. Grizzly G0602 lathe:
Does anyone know if the bdtools kit will work on the G0752lathe?
2. Cnc kit by Billy from bdtools.
From different forums Kiling stepper motors appear to be highlyrecommended. Currently have:
3. Stepper motors: http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/nema-23/nema23-381ozin-3-5a-single-shaft-stepper-motor-kl23h2100-35-4a
4. Stepper motor drive
6. Power supply
Expense (or investment J ) is:
BDtool kit $899
Two Stepper motors $ 99
Stepper motor drive $ 299
Software $ 149
Power supply $130
Any comments/suggestions on this set-up?
