Thread: Sieg Super X3

  1. #1
    I just took the plunge and got me a Super X3 mill.
    I will be converting it to CNC later on, but just wanted to get started and will be making Nema 23 and 34 mounts to start with.

    I have also ordered a 58 peice clamping kit
    and a ER40 collet set
    and i am investigating the milling cutters, so any advise on what to buy and what not to buy would be useful?

    What else do you suggest i get apart for milling for dummies :)

    Also any suggestions on the cnc conversion would be great, I have all the parts to convert it, but if anyone has experience in converting this machine it would be great if you could offer some advice.

    Thanks, lol.
    I think i may upgrade it to one made of MDF :)
    No worryied on how ridged it is, i will only be milling ally and plasics.
