I'm converting a desktop Micro Lathe to a CNC lathe. It has a 4" Diameter by 6'' long machining envelope. This is my first home brew CNC with no plans...well...there being made as I go :)
This isn't finished yet....but it's very close.
@@@@@@@@@@@@ I have added two new files
Ymount.stl is an update to the original Y_mount file. It's been updated with better motor fitting and it replaces the metal bridge on the carriage.
Ymount_brg.stl is an update to add a 8mm OD x 5mm ID x 2mm thick precision bearing. This is a flipping tiny bearing with almost microscopic ball bearings (http://www.mcmaster.com/#7804k104/=w2uqhf) This should help stiffen the shaft slightly (that's what she said).
Y_Mount.stl is the servo mount for the Y carriage on the lathe...I'll leave it up since I know a couple are using it to base your own designs on....
