    Hi all

    So, I have now decided to convert a Sieg X2 mill to cnc first to play with and to make my own cnc router table, bought a conversion plan off eBay, ordered all the materials etc, problem being you need a milling machine to make most the bits!

    my question is, has anyone gone down this route or would anyone be interested in some machining for a reasonable fee? I have the drawing on pdf

    any thoughts?

    many thanks

    Allan

    I'm aware of a couple X2 conversions on here, as I did consider converting one.
    Have you checked out cnczone?
    I know most are US based, but there are a good few over there. The big thread of interest is Hoss's, as he pretty much took his as far as he could before upgrading to a bigger mill.

    As for making the bits, an X2 is a mill ;-)
    Doing bits manually makes you appreciate the benefits (and drawbacks!) of cnc.

    Post up a RFQ with some details, and I'm sure you'll find someone to make the bits for you.
    Out of curiousity, what plans did you buy?

    Is your plan to keep the stock screws and nuts etc or replace everything?

    Send me the plans or drawings and I'll have a look what's involved. If not too much work I'll fire them off for you.

    PM you my email.

    The plans I bought from ebay replaces everything, I have bought all the materials just need some help, I've been making some of the easier bits today but will be struggling on pockets for bearings etc.
