    hello,
    Been looking at this forum for a while, and thought i would take the plunge.
    I have an X3 manual mill and started to convert it to CNC.
    nearly finnished it now, and just need to sort the motors out and drivers out.

  2. Hi Geza and welcome to the site. We'd love to see some pics of how you converted it... why not start a build log

    I got a ballscrew kit from the states, because i wanted to get it converted quick.
    Then left is few months to save up for the motors and drivers.
    Will see if i can take some pics tomorrow.

    Impresive stuf paul.
    This is a few pics i took of the mill, i still need to add the X and the Y axis motors and three drivers.
    The Mill has been sat in my workshop for a few months so looks like it has a bit of rust in places, but is nealy new with only a few hours of use.
    I will get started on the motors and drivers next week.
    Anyone have an idea what size motors to go for on the X and Y axis?
    The motor mounts are nama 23 i think
