Thread: Beavermill conversion to CNC
No I am still looking.
It was a tiny picture as it came off Craigs list when the machine was up for sale after the owners death.
It looked like a casting as the lower bolts were short ones and sunk into cast pockets at the side.
The head was part of a J head in that it used the spindle and quill and had the varispeed motor arrangement at the rear.
Still looking.John S -
John with the riser you mean the Z axis i supposed ?
Because I did a complete redesign of it on my machine and if you want some more pictures I can provide.
It was a conventional manual bridgy with nod and tilt head but it had a horizontal spindle thru the riser, front to back.John S -
After the bolts were finished we put on the turret.
The next thing I wanted to do was rebuilding the spindle.
But first we had it disassembled.
And some more of the same.
And more pictures
This was part of the dismantling .
Now we going to modify it some and put it back together.
First measure the part and make some notes and later I made some extra holes in it to be used in a later stage for mounting a ring to get cooling on to the workpiece.
We have to make a new motor support because it is having a special flange
