Thread: Sieg Super X3 conversion
Thought id start this build log since i finally have my milling machine. Machine arrived last week and iv been building a suitable frame to sit it on, finished the frame yesterday and with the help of my trusty engine hoist got the mill up onto the table. Have incorperated a small cabinet into the frame, an appropriate space for my PC and coolant tank. Will get some pics when im in the garage next.
Will probaby make a nice stainless coolant tank with an internal pump in the coming weeks and a flood coolant tray to attach to the milling bed.
At this time it looks like i will be ordering a CNC FUSION kit for my X3 due to the quotes i got from any UK company when i mentioned reduced backlash. Just for machining the ends of c5 grade screws was around half the cost of the whole kit from the US!
This is the setup i have chosen so far from zapp automation, but im on the lookout for cheaper alternatives or suppliers. Recomendations welcome.
