Are lathe mill combos any good

What are lathe mill combos? A lathe mill combo is a combination of lathe or lathe mill. They combine lathe and milling capabilities into one machine. They are good for relatively small jobs. They are generally less efficient than having two separate machines. Lathe Mills are also fondly known as the ‘Mother of Machine Tools.’…

CNC Machine Types

What is a CNC router? A CNC router is a cutting machine numerically controlled by computer programming codes. It mounts a handheld router as a spindle to cut aluminum, wood, steel, plastics, and glass. CNC routers can cut various materials into different shapes for varying purposes. They can operate with CAM software programs and G-code…

How to operate CNC Milling Machine

CNC is Computer Numerical Control and works in various industries, including aerospace and medical care. A CNC milling machine is a device controlled by numerical computer control. The CNC milling process uses the CNC milling machine, which rotates its cylindrical cutter, moving along multiple axes and creating slots or holes. CNC machines generate more precision…

How to Mill without a Milling Machine

It is achievable to mill without a milling machine depending on the task. A drill press is another method to use in place of a milling device. The problem with drills is that they contain a Morse taper and no drawbar to retain it. It is also challenging to mill material such as metal with…

What size stepper motor for CNC mill

Choosing a stepper motor for a CNC router is a bit tricky, especially if you have just started with CNC routers. A CNC stepper motor converts electrical pulses into mechanical movement. It usually comes with a spindle that rotates 200 steps per revolution in discrete increments.  CNC stepper motors are helpful in areas where controlling…
