    I have been working on my project for some time but have just now gotten around to write about it.
    My machine is the SIEG Super X2P HiTorque Mill from Arceurotrade.co.uk
    The ball screws Iím using are from Isel and the 16 mm version, this was mainly because of the very limit space under the X and Y axis.
    My controle is the Eding CNC CPU5A4 Starter 4 axes in combination with a Triple Beast from benezan-electronics.de and one DM556 Leadshine Digital 18-50VDC 0,5 - 5,6A.

    After stripping the X2 from all not need for the conversion I started milling and drilling for the central lubrication system.


    And milling out for the ballscrew ball-nuts.

    Slow progress and updates on the project sorry, I have finished the Y axis and made a special bearing mount block for the Y axis because of the limit space if I want to install it under the Y axis (this is a standard bearing mount not the special mount block).
