    DM3000 Lathe Re-Build: Centroid Acorn CNC or UCCNC?

    I have a DM3000 lathe, with factory everything. Planning on rebuilding it soon. My last DM3000 was rebuilt with Gecko 540, CNC4PC BOB. I'm thinking of going a different route with this build.
    What's the opinion? Centroid Acorn CNC? or UCCNC?
    I want to use the rotary tool turret.

    Looking for what you would use - and why?

    UCCNC does not really have a lathe mode, so I'd say the Acorn wins easily.

    Thanks Ger. I know you know everybody in the industry -including UCCNC - you should get them on the stick! Really thinking about going the acorn route on the DM3000. Their website leaves a lot to be desired. There are a good bit of YouTube videos out, though.

    They do have a user forum as well.

    Give me a call later if you have time. After 7:00 if possible.
