I Will need to know the BRAND LATHE & the BED LENGTH you have 7X10 , 7X12 , 7X14 before I can assemble this kit .This kit will ship out with 1/4 couplers for your stepper motor unless you tell me different . THANKS !
I THANK YOU IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING MY CNC MINI LATHE KIT . DUE TO MY CURRENT WORKING CONDITIONS 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 Ball screw on the Z Axis and a Custom made Bronze Split Nut on the X axis. Please see my other listings for the full ball screw kits .
This kit is will come ready to install on the 7X10" model lathes and will fit the 7X12" ,and the 7X14" model Sieg lathes .... I would need to know which Lathe you have before I ship.
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 several of these kits and they have been installed on the HarborFreight , MicroMark , Big Dog , LittleMachineShop Seig Style 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 ............ I have pictures of this kit installed on the 7x10, 7x12 and the 7x14 lathes in this listing .
The installation is simple, but 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 6 holes and opening up another for clearance. That's it! It will take about an afternoon to install. 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 the shorter Bed machines that comes in handy .
This kit is constructed from machined aluminum parts which features an attractive machine finish that looks Great on this setup. The bearings are high quality, and sealed for longevity. The X axis is a right hand thread 1/2-10 Acme (.500 inch) in diameter that runs through a custom machined , FULLY ADJUSTABLE BRONZE SPLIT NUT and a New 1204mm Ballscrew Design for the Z Axis . The CNC Flexible Plum Coupling 1/4 Shaft Couplers are included with the kit. Depending on coupler supplier coupler may differ from picture , but will be oldham style and same bulk size .
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 or servo motors, (CONTROLLER AND STEPPER MOTORS NOT INCLUDED. FOR DISPLAY ONLY ) which can be purchased together with a complete machine controller. A couple of these packages that I feel represent a good value can be found here ( Please understand that I am not affiliated with these sellers )
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 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............ Thank you for considering this item, and please feel free to contact me with any inquiries .
