First off this is a teaser more than anything else. I am not sure if I will build this cnc lathe, considering it would be a huge project and cost quite a bit. But I have not been able to get to the shop to work on things this week and spent a few hours modeling this up.
So here is what I have so far.
The design is a long way from being done, but you can see the basic idea. I am designing it around the tools I have access too.
Frame is made from a sheet of 0.375 inch thick steel and then welded together.
8" diameter chuck with a 2.55 bore
Current weight 565.13 pounds
48" long, 24" wide, 24" high
Anyway, I figured I would toss it up here and see what people think. Feel free to ask questions or make suggestions.
