https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jf0F6CiQcQ Hey, you're doing a great job there! The only thing I don't personally like is the center-height to beds' width ratio. The more the height you set your spindle at without either widening the beds or reinforcing the overall structure, the lighter the duty the machine will be able to support during normal operation before it starts to flex/vibrate.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY6wmHL48H0 . Shimming of any plane perpendicular to another in the x,y and z axis is done with a granite cube and describes method of using Moglice or JB Weld to create a headstock.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzytexbrdlg Building this lathe from scratch was a challenge. I'm not a mechanical engineer, so the build was based on gut feeling and materials I had available. Still I'm quite happy with the end result, even though my lathe does not have the full functionality of a real lathe. But it is small, quite power full and can still handle up to 30mm diameter metal rods through the spindle boring hole. Now I finally can continue my work on the new linear actuators for my 5th generation motion platform.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgB9rx3AhoE The bed in the lathe - this is the base - this is the basis of the machine --- and first of all the rigidity of the machine --- and also the rigidity of the headstock depend on the bed! in the absence of a cast-iron bed - it is possible to make a reinforced concrete frame and fasten or weld to it an existing bed with guides. The linear guides are milled cast iron bar bolted to steel, with the spacer wedge held in place from either side.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptdo2bSKov0 Project no.78 diy homemade mini metal lathe machine (torno) The lathe machine is for facing bronze aluminum and alloy steel, when it comes to Mild steel its a different story i tested it and you see in the video it also can work with mild steel but it make some vibrations in the head and some weird noise that im sure its not normal. Upgrades that needs to be done to the lathe machine: use another high quality Pillow block bearing, Adding a Drill press pulley System and Changing atleast 1/2 or 3/4hp motor. I hope You Enjoy Watching My Video Building a Metal Lathe Without Using a Lathe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWlOh71EW1s cnc converion of mill. Today we're converting a manual milling machine to CNC. We install high quality ballscrews, ballnuts, and angular contact bearings on first the Z axis and then the Y and X axis. We also install stepper motors. This video features tips and techniques that I have developed over the past 10 conversions or so. You'll even see hardware from the first CNC conversion I ever did that was made on a manual milling machine. I learn something new every time. Please share your own CNC conversion tips and experience in the comments below.

Details: More info on the conversion kit used in this video can be found here: https://www.cncelements.com/ More info on the Precision Mathews PM-25MV milling machine used in this video can be found here:https://www.precisionmatthews.com/shop/pm-25mv/. This conversion utilizes the Centroid Acorn control board. Let me know if you would like to see video content on my specific setup: http://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_diy/acorn_cnc_controller.html

http://www.lathes.co.uk/stepperhead/ Designed and built by Alan Jackson, the Stepperhead is an attempt to combine, in one unit, the range of facilities found in a medium sized lathe and a small vertical/horizontal milling machine. In the 1950s David Urwick had designed and built the ingenious and versatile Metalmaster http://www.lathes.co.uk/metalmaster/ , a device that combined a lathe and milling machine without unduly compromising the attributes of either.
