Hi All

I'm a newby here and am just about to buy a Warco WM 14 and convert it to CNC to build some diving equipment.

If there are any people in the Lincoln area who I can lean on for practical advice that would be amazing. Other than that I'll be posting about the conversion and the challenges I face as I face them.

Hi Jools,

have a look in the manufacturer forum. I do benchmount mills and am developing a CNC kit that will be plug and play in terms of hardware:

Hi There

Thanks for the response. I've had a look at that link but it's a bit pricey for my wallet.

Jools, I have a WM14 and am considering a CNC conversion - just wondering if you went ahead and made the conversion?
Thanks
Steve

Hi Jools,

I'm in Lincoln but unfortunately I am very new to CNC so not much use really :0)

However i'd be interested in popping over for a look see if you have the time.

Cheers

Hi Steve
I ended up just buying one that had been converted already. It was such a good deal and made me realise that it would allow me to start building stuff I wanted to build rather than building the machine.

Hi Dave
Thanks for getting in touch. What's your interest in CNC? Are you looking to build one or buy one or something?
