CNC Router / Mini-Mill 4 Axis, 5 Axis READY TO RUN!!! Items included: 1x 5 Axis CNC Router/Mill 1x 3 Milling Vise w/original handle and 3D printed knob 1x 5th Axis (A+B Axis) trunnion 1× 4th Axis w/Tailstock + chuck key 3x T-Slot Clamps 1x Windows XP Computer (Parallel Port cable included) + ACER Monitor 1× UC100 USB Adapter for newer Windows Op.
Just add air+mist coolant to get going 1x cheapo USB The stand the CNC is sitting on is yours if you want it (mdf placed on top of a bandsaw stand, you could wire up the estop switch on the stand). The machine is in great shape after some much needed TLC and is smooth running now. Only an hour or so of run time so far, more if I need it for another project.
When I got the machine, it was brand new. I pulled the covers to lubricate the X, Y, Z axes (I have the covers tucked away if you want them).
The unit came bone dry and with a bent Y-Axis leadscrew and broken coupler which I immediately replaced with a new 1605 ballscrew w/bearing block supports and hefty closed belt drive. I just screwed the motor mount into the stand so I could get cutting. I didn't like the spacers on the Z-axis motor cover (loss of rigidity), so I removed the 4 spacers and flimsy cover and butted the thick plates up against each other, more rigid and easy to lubricate (also allows you to adjust tram separately from the nod).
I trammed the spindle, then added shims behind the spindle mount to adjust the nod, and trammed again. I installed a mist cutting coolant system for cutting 6061 aluminum and added a simple spindle cooling system.
I cut some acrylic sheet for the enclosure; it's a little ugly in a few spots especially where it's obvious I used super glue i. The handles are just super glued on but it contains chips and mist pretty well. It leaks a little bit in the front corners but it can be caulked or can be easily removed and rebuilt if you want it to be pretty, I just slapped it together so I could start cutting (it saved my face from a broken cutter once, so I'm fine with it). Pictures of my first cuts (facing op, followed by 2d pocket with a 6mm endmill like the one pictured). I'm happy to share my settings in Fusion360 to get you going.
