This article describes how I added an easy-to-make DRO (Digital Readout) to the cross-slide of my 712 mini-lathe. It uses an inexpensive digital dial indicator that I bought from Harbor Freight for about $25. It works very well and you won't have to drill any holes in

2015/12/12Hi, I though it time I fitted DRO's to my Mini Mill. I have gone for three separate units and the first one I fitted last week is on the Z axis and has proved to be very satisfactory in use. This one consists of a vertical slider with is own DRO, the slider being attached to spindle drive cover and the bottom end of the bar attached main body of the mill head.

I had taken a shop course at a community college a few years ago. They let me touch a Bridgeport Mill, then made me use it! It had a power feed on the x-axis and I was suitably impressed. When I moved to Arizona I finally spent my whiskey, tobacco, and evil

2012/12/18The X2 Mini Mill kit is the most popular from CNC Fusion, primarily because the mini mill platform is considered a great tool at a modest price for hobbyists. With the X2 Mini-Mill CNC kit #2 all the new upgrade parts bolt to existing features and you replace the factory lead screw with high-precision ball screws and new motor mount adapters to accept NEMA 23 stepper motors.


WattsWorks: Mini Mill 3 Axis DRO

Mini Mill 3 Axis DRO A while ago I got hold of this Shumatech DRO 350 kit to fit to my Sieg SX2 Mini Mill. The mill is great for doing semi accurate stuff to layout lines and simple handwheel count jobs, but if you want to do things much more accurately much quicker a digital read out is the way to go.

Why a DRO? •Trying to achieve a precision of 0.001 inches. •Experience has shown that my Rong Fu Mill/Drill is potentially capable of 0.001 inch precision. •DRO is cheaper than a new mill and a CNC system. •DRO is faster and easier to use than a micrometer.

I bought my mini mill in January of the last year, and it didn't take long to realize that 16TPI lead screws with their silly 0.0625" per revolution were, to say the least, suboptimal. In other words dialing anything that involved more than one revolutions sucked really bad.

Digital Readouts DRO Digital Readout systems have quickly become the most popular additional for lathes and milling machines. We offer a range of different systems to suit all budgets - from stand alone readout scales to high end complete glass optical systems that work together with a readout counter.

The basic mill is a Harbor Freight Mini Mill Item number 44991 also called an X2. This was the natural choice for me. This low cost mill has a vast user group with many CNC conversion examples. I knew the upgrade to ball screws was a must but given the CNC

Our CNC Jr. conversion kits will make the CNC Jr. easier than ever to use while also giving you the ability to make cuts that are even more accurate. The retrofit kits are able to simplify complicated plans, such as the production of precision cuts, and their complex

Mill belt drive conversion

Mill belt drive conversion. The Sieg X1L is a fairly robust little machine and I have used it for many years with few problems. Being a small mill means that it has its limitations and large cuts are not possible in one pass but they can be accomplished with multiple passes.

A few notes about the table above. 1 – The price of the Mini Mill includes a 20% off coupon, shipping and tax. 2 – The GRBL shield requires an Arduino or equivalent board. 3 – I updated the link to the X2 Conversion Kit. The Original link called for a CNC Fusion kit.

I engineered the X2MM CNC KIT, a revolutionary CNC conversion kit for X2 mini mills for guys who cannot afford or do not want to pay $5,000 for a CNC desktop mill. And unlike the kits you've seen sold (by amateurs that are notorious for binding), this kit is specifically-engineered not to bind and you gain (not lose) 1.37" of Z-axis travel (but gaining an extra 3.37 of Z-axis travel

CNC Conversion Plans by Ron Steele (04/07/05) Ron has developed detailed plans for converting the mini-lathe and mini-mill to CNC operation. If you aren't familiar with CNC, it stands for Computer Numeric Control and enables a machine tool such as a lathe or mill to be automatically driven under control of a computer program.
