Metal Mill

This machine was constructed using parts from a BFE65 milling attachment for a MD65 Lathe, the table is made from an XY milling table all ball screws have been replaced .This again is controlled by Mach 3 as I only use one machine at a time as switching system has been installed so it controls either mill and in the future will also control the lathe as cabling has been installed ready for this.

The only problem encountered so far is that the spindle speed is low only 1650 rpm max. This will be rectified shortly.

The mill has produced  steel parts for tow releases and parts for  2 Pegasus glider amongst many other small parts
