    Re: Automated Precision Equipment?

    A fanuc servo controller costs about 2500$, add maybe 500$ in things like cables, tuning sw, or whatever.
    == 1 kW, typical older machines.

    Re: Automated Precision Equipment?

    It is likely that a new servo driver and motor can easily be substituted.

    For ballpark, a 750W modern brushless AC servo is about 700€ in the EU, all-included with 22% VAT.
    These have both...

    Test movement.

    Will x axis movements repeat consistently, and return to zero//same place consistently.

  4. Re: How to machine 2 sided parts on a entry level CNC mill

    This is really easy.
    Google gage pins.

    You drill a hole somewhere, then ream it, to about 5.00 mm, for 2 of 5.00 mm gage pin.
    Drill 4.7 mm, ream 5.00 m.
    Then you put your blank on the gage...

    You problem has nothing to do with strength and everything to do with torsional rigidity on 5 axis effects.

    Re: Faster to and fro Linear Motion design

    Nothing commercial will work as-is, if they have any contact surfaces.

    So ball bearings, linear slides, etc. are all out as they wear out very fast at speeds below yours.

  8. Re: Differences between HTD, GT, AT and T pulleys?

    Even with HTD-8 profiles, about 3x and HTD-5, and 30 mm wide belts,
    the results are not good for 4th axis apps.

    Angular holding, no.

    Re: CNC/manual benchtop lathe

    For a metalworking lathe---
    I think the spindle shaft is far too slim.

    They are springs, with 1 step boundaries....

    Re: Slightly sizing down a carbide drill

    I suspect what you want is a carbide reamer.

    Since you seem happy with interpolated holes, I also suspect you don´t achieve 0.01 mm +/- in size cylindricity and straightness.
