    Hi I have added some photos of my CNC Slant Bed Lathe in the My CNC Slant Bed Lathe album. It is running om Mach3 and works fine. I need to change the break out board as it does not support treading. I need also to shim the spindel side plate to improve the the accuracy.

    Your pictures posted. Cool machine! We see a lot on CNC mills but not so much on CNC lathes. For the sake of us CNC nerds a write up on your build would be good reading.

    Thanks for posting.

    I have previously build an CNC Router/3D printer and this was my fist experience with CNC. I like designing and figuring out how to do this and make that and finally building things.
    I found a couple of DIY lathes on the internett and looked at "real machines", than I made the general specification and decided which components to use. I designed is in Inventor. To avoid stress in the steel I decided to build it without welding. In this design I figured it would be easier to get everything in alignement.

    I made all the mounting hardware for a CNC rebuild/scratchbuild ish on my X2 mill. That's 3 bearing blocks, 2 motor mounts, 2 ball nut mounts, and 1 motor extension. All the cutting was done on the X2 under CNC control.

    I am also working on a spindle light, some of the work was done manually on the lathe, but the drilling and cutting for the light recess was all done using CNC.
