CNC Conversion – Project Dreams

About a year ago, I was walking around and saw this mill sitting around. I inquired about it and was told it used to be used for some kind of plaster mold making. It was covered in oil, plaster & dirt. The screws don’t turn, the bed is certainly not flat, the head is locked up and the drill chuck won’t come out. Sounds like the perfect mill to convert to CNC right? Seriously though, the price was right and I had it moved indoors (yup, it had been sitting outside for years).


For reference, here is what the mill would look like if it was new… The million dollar question, will the CNC look as good as the new mill ? Only time will tell.
