I come from a family full of machinists, but I never had the chance to actually use a machine tool myself. When I finally picked up this lathe, I couldn’t shake the itch to convert it to CNC.

I have been tinkering with CNC systems for years, and I love converting things to CNC. In the end everything goes back to stock, but that never stops me from trying.
