Thread: Warco WM16 CNC Conversion.
What a limp video, tells you sod all, might as well advertise on the back of a bus except for the fact he's using the wrong couplings so what else is pissed up. the yanks are good for this , they invented the Bridgeport after all.
Look at the CNC fusion kits, Z axis stuck that far out the side it's only good for drying clothes on.
The Hi torque lathe kit looks like it was designed in kindergarden.John S -
Clive s. I don't think I ever suggested otherwise!

Can you imagine Star Trek?
Captains Log, Stardate 7 1 2017.
We are just about to enter the Alpha Quadrant....
(Pipes up) Oooh, No Captain! You don't enter the Alpha Quadrant like that we've all already been to the Alpha Quadrant, it's not as good as you think it is! You are an arrogant shit if you think you can enter the Alpha Quadrant like that! In fact we've a good mind to take away your Log! Now do as you're told and enter the Alpha Quadrant like you've been told!
Over and out!

Incidentally you should look up the definition of LOG in this context.
Merriam-Webster:- a record of performance, events, or day-to-day activities
Cambridge:- a full written record of a journey, a period of time, or an event
I don't think there is any mention of the writers character or personality by people unconnected to the aforementioned events!
Just because you have Drives/motors and they were cheap doesn't mean you should use them. You could sell them and buy better suited.!
We know thru experience that there's lot of work time goes into building/converting these machines and not something one wants to waste time doing twice so the advise given is based on things like this not just because we are Anal or got OCD.
Now Captain Clingon crack on with your LOG and have happy Journey.
If I sold them I wouldn't be able to play with them, or re-use them for my router project! It's very simple. Granted they are not ideal but many people who convert these machines seem to do so in phases. Using what is cheap and at hand provisionally to go onto adapt the build into something else. Hoss's plans breaks down into three phases. Mine begins as an adaptation of the second phase. It's not an attack on anyone here to say that this is how I intend to build my machine. I'm very happy if you've all found good solutions. If I had the cash, or wanted to, I would buy a kit and go down that road but I simply came here to build a machine THIS way. The pitfalls, and I'm sure there will be many, are part of the learning curve for me. The log here should provide evidence of these pitfalls for other people. I honestly don't see what the problem is. I was not foul mouthed or abusive toward anyone here, believe it or not I respect you guys, who many would consider to be a bunch of geeks, because I am a sad geek too! I hope you can understand that my abrasive manner is not any reflection on anyone here, and I certainly didn't mean to be understood as rude! It's just who I am since my accident. Happy CNCing!
