    NEW guy with a NEW to ME CNCMasters 10x54

    Before the wincing starts. I did not buy it new. I got it used with very low hours like less that 50. And I got it so cheap I am Embarrassed to tell, I literally stole it. with a decent amount of tooling.

    As some here have said CNCMasters are Jerks and I agree.

    So HERE I am, I know Zero about CNC, and What I really want to ask is

    What oils does this machine use? (They would not say unless I bought a support contract, they would not send PDF manuals either.. WHAT A&()LS.)

    Cavate: I have a 1964 Wells Index that has seen some good use. over the years.

    And does any one have the Operators manual? the machine is a 2013 manufacture.

    any waylube oil will suffice .Hydraulic oil will do you until you can get some .
    Getting manuals I'm guessing is going to be a problem and the software is mediocre to say it in a nice way . Since you got it cheap then it may be worth doing a few mods to get it running a better control software , even though mach 3 is old it is still far better .
    If your looking to work with what you've got then the basics are going to be the same as with most mills . Offsets to locate your work piece , tool height locations etc . The code is basic g code which is common with most cnc's , Even if you can't find a manual that is for that machine then you can still learn the lingo and how to operate by watching youtube videos of other hobby machines then relate it back to yours

    as it is the machine itself is going to be somewhat solid , and you should be able to make it work for you if it's completely intact . they have a list of compatible g and m codes on their site

    Thanks for that. The one I have is the Large Supra model with a 10X54 table. Basically a Bridgeport #2 if I understand the similarities..

    Should I use VELOCITE #10 for the spindle?
