    Enclosure for X2 or X3 Mill

    Hi,

    A while ago I converted a Sieg X2 to full CNC and one thing I had issues with is finding an enclosure. In fact I couldn't find one so ended up making one so I could run an air cooling system and have the mill in my living room (I'm single what can I say). I'm curious, I can make the enclosures and am wondering if anybody would be interested, they would retail for around $1000 bucks and I could make it large enough for either an X2 or X3 conversion, you could seal it with calking, add some drain holes and run a coolant system. Really I am trying to gauge interest. Just the enclosure, full 24" opening doors, side windows that also open, measurements are 24"x24"x44, 16 gauge steel, perspex windows, but as I said I could make it bigger to accommodate an X2 or X3 mill. Curious to know peoples thoughts. Thanks.

    Wow..that's an interesting setup. It looks familiar to me, but I'm not sure why!
