Any items not displayed in the above picture can be seen in the component lists.
The full conversion kit excludes these items:
- Lathe (advice can be given regarding suppliers)
- Computer system (only need a basic computer with a printer port)
- X Axis and Z Axis Stepper Motor Controllers
- Keyboard / Monitor Console (as maybe seen in youtube video)
- CAD/CAM Software (like Mach 3 or CamBam. See link page for link to websites)
- Variable Speed controller (Inverter) and 3 Phase Spindle Motor (Only needed if you wish to control the spindle speed automatically. Screw-cutting is still possible using the standard single phase motor and pulley arrangement).
- Emergency Stop Switch
- Lathe bed raising blocks (these are needed to allow clearance between the Z axis belt housing casting and the drip tray.
- Painting of the castings. **
