    This is not a mach3, an smc5 by lollette.
    All the added set and run buttons are "book ended" to sides just a real industrial machine so you dont muddle up in a panic.
  2. Re: Benchtop surface grinder, why are there none on the market?

    I'm a probably 25 years behind you Ian, similar interests and background though.
    Probably everyone at CNCzone 'bench top' thread have similar limitations, maybe a basement or a single car space...
  3. Re: Benchtop surface grinder, why are there none on the market?

    Ian, these vertical grinders give me the impression of a miniature wash grinder, my memories of wash grinding were concave faces with deep groove scratches, more of a "pre'" machining operation.
    I'm...
  4. Re: Benchtop surface grinder, why are there none on the market?

    The grizzly just about nails it, I need a 4" by 4" work area for piston rings, tappet shims, bucket follower heads. A bit pricey though, a seig copy would be nice.
  5. Benchtop surface grinder, why are there none on the market?

    Hi, as the title goes, most surface grinders are big iron lumps.
    Surely a benchtop could be done? All the better for adding cnc to it, thoughts?

    Re: my 1handed o704 build

    O.k, I get it now. That 'delete' thread was a multiple thread post of the same title.

    50v on a 1200oz stepper sounds perfect, close to servo performance.

    Re: Z axis ball scre RF25 etc

    The best way is make 3 or 4 split clamps identical which clamp onto the 115mm dia column. Design a plate to bolt onto it with either dovetail or ballrails, buy a use bf20 lathe milling head...
  10. Re: BF20L plus CNC kit from Red Fox Machinery

    BF20 is too small for a ford V8 engine, even a bridgeport is too small. You'll need a 'huron' style mill to work on V8 blocks.
    You might get the heads on a RF45 benchtop, BF20 lacks that extra 4...

    Re: 90v 72v... worth worrying over?

    I'm using an old shunt welder with diodes and a large cap, makes a lovely hum when warming up!
  14. Re: BF46TC copy vs IHCNC, Bolton, or AR Tools - large table RF clone: What would you

    I'd say go for it, if it's production you want then haunt the auction houses.
    Otherwise, 1/3 of a tonne, single phase is about as good as it gets for most home users.
