$525.00 plus shipping
NOTICE ----- THIS CNC CONVERSION KIT IS MADE IN THE U.S.A DESIGNED AND BUILT BY BDTOOLSUSA NOT THE MANUFACTURER FOR DIFFERENT BRAND LATHES SUCH AS GRIZZLY , HARBOR FREIGHT, LITTLEMACHINESHOP,SIEG 7X10 , 7X12 , 7X14 STYLE LATHES.
I will need to know which Brand Lathe and Bed length BEFORE I can assemble and ship. 7x10", 7x12", 7x14" as well as the coupler I.D. size 1/4 etc. Thanks.
I THANK YOU IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING MY CNC MINI LATHE KIT. LEAD TIME FOR THIS KIT COULD TAKE UP TO 7 DAYS AFTER PURCHASE TO SHIP SO PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF IT IF YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE. THANK YOU!
This kit has a ballscrew on the X and the Z Axis.
This kit will require drilling and tapping of holes in the saddle, cross slide, and the lathe bed end to mount this kit. These new tapped holes are larger and stronger than the original which will omit movement and make for a good solid mount. The Z axis will gain several more inches of travel movement on the bed end once the original mount is removed and the new mount is installed. On these shorter machines, that comes in handy. All information will be sent through e-mail after kit is purchased. If you are unable to do the hole patterns in the saddle and cross slide, contact me. Due to the design of the X axis, it will require to be disassembled and reassembled to go through the lathe saddle hole. I have some very good picture instructions that cover all of this. This kit will come ready to install on your 7 X10", 7 X12", and the 7 X14" model Seig lathe once you get the holes added that are required to mount this kit...... NOTICE!!! I will need to know which lathe you have before I can assemble and ship. ( THE LATHE , CONTROLLER, AND STEPPER MOTORS ARE NOT INCLUDED AND ARE FOR DISPLAY & DEMO ONLY )

This listing is for one complete mechanical conversion of your Sieg manufactured mini lathe to Computer Numerical Control. This kit is well designed, and manufactured with care to produce the best quality results possible for the investment.
I have sold similar kits, and they have been installed on the HarborFreight , MicroMark, LittleMachineShop Seig lathes, and other brands as well with no problems and no other instructions other than what I send with the kit by way of E-MAIL.
The installation is simple, but it requires a careful attention to the details of hole-placement. It is well within the scope of abilities of anyone with a realistic objective to learn CNC. It requires drilling and tapping 9 holes and opening up another for clearance. These new tapped holes are larger and stronger than the original which will omit movement and make for a good solid mount. The Z axis will gain several more inches of travel movement on the bed end once the original mount is removed and the new mount is installed.
This kit is constructed from machined aluminum parts which feature an attractive machine finish that looks great on this setup. The bearings are high quality, and they are sealed for longevity. Both axis designs have a 1204 mm ballscrew with a new 1204mm ballscrew design for the X Axis. The CNC Flexible Plum Coupling 1/4 Shaft Couplers are included with the kit. Depending on the coupler supplier, couplers could differ slightly, but they will be same style and size. The kit will arrive preassembled and ready for installation on either the 7 x 10" , 7 x 12", or the 7 x14" length bed Seig models. The X axis will require a final assembly into your saddle after the mounting holes are done.
This kit allows you to retain manual control of the Lathe, providing that dual-shaft motors are used. The Threading function can be made possible by use of a spindle encoder which may be purchased separately .
This kit will work great with NEMA 23 size stepper-motors 1/4 SHAFT ( 270oz ) range motors as are used in the video demos in this listing. (THE LATHE, CONTROLLER, AND STEPPER MOTORS ARE NOT INCLUDED AND ARE FOR DISPLAY & DEMO ONLY) which can be purchased together or separate with a controller kit. A couple of these packages that I feel represent a good value can be found in the link below. (Please understand that I am not affiliated with these sellers.)
All install instructions are sent by way of e-mail .
This kit is crafted with care by an experienced tool and die maker to provide years of service for any enterprising individual that wishes to explore CNC and or make useful parts on a really great little machine. The kit includes all mounting hardware necessary for installation and uses existing holes for mounting whenever possible, but it does require drilling and tapping of some of them, as it would be impractical to design the kit around the hole placement of the manual parts.(Tap & Drill information along with Pictures and step-by-step installing information will be sent by email after auction ends.) The design favors utility over absolute installation simplicity, but makes no compromises that should inhibit the serious user from installing the kit............ E-mail me for any questions you may have about this kit. Thanks.
