Wow, been so busy I have not had a chance to keep you all updated. The CNC conversion of my minimill has begun. I purchased a 4axis drive box from Xylotex with four 269 oz/in stepper motors and the ballscrew and motor mount kit for three axes from CNCfusion. I just finished mounting the Y axis ball screw and motor mount and motor this morning. The ballscrew was too long and I had to install and remove it 4 times while grinding it to length. The bearing collar (which adjusts for near zero backlash) on the X axis was so tight that I stripped the socket head cap screw trying to remove it. Now I have to drill it out and replace it wilh a high quality screw. I had the four motors running on my kitchen table, can't wait to get the mill running under computer control.
