    Anyone know of a CNC retrofit kit for the PM 728 VT

    Hi All

    Just purchased a PM-728 VT and I want to retrofit it to CNC. PM has a kit in the works, but It's going to
    be awhile before it's available. Anyone else offering a kit?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Clearpath are good quality and have good support but are expensive.

    Take a look at Delta (Taiwanese brand manufactured in China) or DMM (Canadian brand manufactured in China) which are also good quality
    with good support and documentaion and four times the power for the same or less money. Delta and DMM have vastly more IO and
    control modes in addition. Clearpath have been made simple to hook up but that comes with a cost, very little IO and basic control modes only.

    This machine is damn good For More Rigidity, And greater cutting ability, I really personally like it,you also can easily control it by hand, its a worth buying machine
    its kit is availabe on many online stores, have you searched on online stores?
    if you are confused to buy from any online stores, then I recommend you few, these are Aamzon, coupon codify, and ebay.
