    Red face HM-54GV CNC Conversion

    Hi Everyone

    I have the following machine which I’m interested to convert to CNC: HM-54GV ( https://www.machineryhouse.com.au/M579 )

    I am very new to machining in general but have desided to not only take that up but also challenge my electronic technical side as well. I have watched a fair few videos around youtube by now and also searched this forum pretty extensively but not alot comes up about my machine specifically.

    I guess one place to start may be to look at what is already fitted to this machine and subtract that from a list of what is typically required?

    Does anyone local to Perth SOR possibly have experience with this kind of thing and willing to help out along the way?

    Kindest Regards

    Andrew, I'm Perth NoR (I don't go South, you people are strange.... )
    I've done a HM45 conversion that ran on Mach 3 and now have a nice locally built linear rail machine running on Linuxcnc.

    Both machines have taught me a lot, caused much hair loss and swearing but also produced some sweet parts once I got things running as I wanted.
    Happy to be a sounding board or offer moral support.
