Thread: Beavermill conversion to CNC
Thank you very much for the pictures and the explanation Andre!
I surelly learned a lot by looking how a real professional tackles the problem.
After seeing the beaver mill in real yesterday I surely didn't wanted to miss anything of the build!
For those who are waiting for more pictures, "The best has yet to come"!
Thanks again for the great coverage of the mill conversion.
Then I thought having not enough height in the Z so I started making a extension piece
that was faster said than done because I had a metal ring that was to smale on the outside and inside .
On te picture you see the ring when finished.
Here are some pictures of work on the extension piece
more pictures and movie links
Kind regards Andre
To assemble the extension piece on the turret I had to make bolts myself because I could not buy these bolts in a store.
A simple task if there is no hexagon slot in it.
